We are proud to present a series of books for the children of New Orleans, beginning with the Lower 9th Ward, that would hopefully not only inform, but inspire them to dream big and know that their dreams are attainable. As Volumes 1 and 2 of the series are now complete, we will go on to create books for each of the 17 wards in New Orleans.
Volumes 1 and 2 detail the contributions made to society by residents of the Lower 9th Ward throughout history. Black History, Our History - Lower 9th Ward Notables focuses on both the highly lauded and unsung heroes of our community. It explores the evolving landscape of the Lower 9 and how we must take pride in our community, as it is fertile ground for greatness.
Black History, Our History - Lower 9th Ward Notables also takes readers on an uplifting “hero’s journey” to inspire them bring about change from the inside out. The end result demonstrates the perseverance, dedication, talent, wisdom and vision of the residents of this historic village.
Here’s the exciting part…
The books are also experiences in and of themselves. It’s a visually rich, full-color journey… think digital app but in an analog format, loved by both children and adults.
The result is, well, something we hope you will find engaging, entertaining and worthy to be handed down through generations.
