Faubourg Tremé: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans

Faubourg Tremé: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans is the riveting story of one community’s epic struggle for racial equality – from slave revolts and underground free black antebellum resistance, through the challenges of post-Katrina rebuilding today – all set to a fabulous soundtrack of New Orleans music through the ages. This award-winning film gives the depth of history to current racial strife and challenges viewers to think historically and critically about the links between race, class, conflict, and cultural expression in our modern communities. This is the true story of the neighborhood that inspired David Simon’s fictional HBO television series “Tremé“.
