Editorial Reviews

Review

When Zora Neale Hurston noted that New Orleans was the fountainhead of African American culture, she was talking about Tremé. Michael Crutcher’s book is a long overdue study of this critically important neighborhood―a place that exemplifies key issues about race and gentrification in the postindustrial United States. Given its timely subject matter and accessible style, the book should be of interest to scholars as well as general readers.

(Anthony J. Stanonis author of Creating the Big Easy: New Orleans and the Emergence of Modern Tourism, 1918–1945)

Never before has the mystery and glory of Faubourg Tremé been brought together in one volume. For the knowledgeable insider, Michael Crutcher’s research conquers familiar myths with facts, and elevates other myths to the status of verifiable truth. For those students who are unfamiliar with this unique American neighborhood, Crutcher makes a cogent argument in clear prose for why this place is worthy of attention, study, and celebration.

(Lolis Eric Elie writer for the television program Treme)

This work fills a void in the geographic literature that investigates the historical evolution of a New Orleans neighborhood associated with free people of color and its contemporary destruction and reconstruction. The text is written in clear, jargon-free language―an accomplishment for any author dealing with such complex theoretical concerns.

(Toni Alexander Journal of Cultural Geography)

Mutti Burke has pioneered into new historiographical territory, and On Slavery’s Border will be profitably read by specialists, generalists, and graduate students alike.

(Dave E. Paterson Journal of Southern History)

This provocative book challenges historical preservationists and profit-driven city planners alike to be more mindful of the hard-working and creative African American working class and its considerable cultural contributions to America. It is a must-read text for anyone interested in race, community activism, African American culture, and urban development in the inner city. (Ina Fandrich Louisiana History)

I love New Orleans. I've been there several times and each time I feel the energy of the city and its' people.
The HBO show captures the intensity of the people living in the Treme parish and the music needs to
survive with the people. Wonderful book,
