"Creole History" Talk
JEANERETTE, La. – The Jeanerette Museum Board announces the history talk, "What is Creole?"

The talk set for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 28 at the Jeanerette Museum explores the Creole world—a place where cooks tempt taste buds with gumbo and crawfish, where storytellers mesmerize young and old with tales tied to three continents, and where musicians and dancers pulsate to the rhythms of accordions and rub boards.

Learn more about the term Créole and why descendants of Louisiana’s native born population have alternately claimed or denied Creole identity, as well as how their contributions still impact South Louisiana today.

This history talk is being held free of charge and is suitable for an adult audience. Seating may be limited and taken on a first come, first serve basis.
