Black Bars in NOLA, NYT long article

Source--https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/24/us/new-orleans-black-bars-second-lines.html

snip--"But outside, much has changed. Four of the six nearby bars all of which were once owned and operated by black people and served black customers now have white owners and cater to a primarily white crowd."

snip--" Tradition is paramount and I fear what will become of my city if these traditions are lost.

Throughout Africa and the African diaspora, black bars tend to serve as more than hangouts, be they the shebeens of South Africa or the juke joints of the Mississippi Delta. They can be safe spaces, cultural institutions, even cultural catalysts."

Much more at article, lovely photos as well

2. I have a vague recollection of a live music night, after Katrina

And it was a most excellent trip and time
