Nine chances to catch up on Black History Month in New Orleans

Now that the Mardi Gras hangover has finally worn off, New Orleans takes the opportunity to remember Black History Month (which the rest of the country began celebrating Feb. 1).

For year-round exhibits, programs and resources on local African-American history, the Backstreet Cultural Museum,*the McKenna Museum of African American Art, the New Orleans African American Museum*and the Ashe Cultural Arts Center are all excellent starting points.
