Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans
When that's where you left your heart
And there's one thing more, I miss the one I care for
More than I miss New Orleans
-- “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans"
I’m ending the month the same way I began it – recommending a documentary for your viewing pleasure. The film, “All on a Mardi Gras Day” (and here), tells the story behind the story of Mardi Gras. It’s a story of liberation, struggle, resiliency, and black folks’ affirmation of their humanity. The filmmaker, Royce Osborn, a New Orleans native and Katrina survivor, is working on a new film, "Walking to New Orleans," which will be released later this year.
Stay tuned (and here).
