Andrew Kahrl on the history of segregated beaches in New Orleans

Here’s a recent article by Andrew Kahrl in Louisiana Cultural Vistas on the history of segregated beaches in New Orleans.  See pages 68-77 (starts on page 70 of the viewer at the bottom).  Those interested in this subject should check out his book, The Land Was Ours: African American Beaches from Jim Crow to the Sunbelt South, which comes out in April.  Congrats Andrew!

Andrew Kahrl is an assistant professor of US and African American History.  We look forward to the publication of his first book (listed above) by Harvard University Press.
