Faubourg Treme: The Untold Story Of Black New Orleans
The past and present collide in this award-winning film about New Orleans’ fabled neighborhood, Faubourg Treme, home to the largest community of free black people in the Deep South and the birthplace of jazz.
Faubourg Treme is considered the oldest black neighborhood in America, the origin of the Southern Civil Rights Movement, and the birthplace of jazz. Five years before Hurricane Katrina hit, two New Orleanians, one white and one black- filmmaker Dawn Logsdon and writer Lolis Eric Elie - began documenting the rich living culture of Faubourg Treme, then a little known neighborhood overshadowed by the adjacent famous French Quarter. Long ago during slavery, Faubourg Treme was home to a large, prosperous, and artistically flourishing community free black people. It was also a hotbed of political ferment. Here black and white, free and enslaved, rich and poor co-habitated, collaborated, and clashed to create much of what defines New Orleans culture up to the present day. In so many ways its story reflects the tortuous path taken by African American history over the centuries.
A century before the Harlem Renaissance and the modern Civil Rights Movement, Treme was a center of black cultural and political ferment. In 1862, after Northern troops captured the city, Paul Trevigne, an ancestor of Irving, edited the oldest black-owned daily newspaper in the U.S., The Tribune, which became an eloquent advocate for African Americans’ civil rights. Before the 14th,15th and 16th Amendments, it demanded the right to enlist in the Union army, to vote and to be subject to equal treatment under the law. During the heady days of Reconstruction, black New Orleanians employed sit-down strikes to integrate the city’s streetcars; it became the only city in the South with desegregated schools. At one point, more than half the state legislators were African Americans, as well as the governor.
