Carnival Noir Book Talk

In the first book of its kind focusing on the expansive African-American Mardi Gras experience in New Orleans, float designer and native New Orleanian Rene Pierre documents and explores the richness of his community’s contributions. With two generations of family photographs and a firsthand knowledge of the African-American krewes, Pierre brings to light this oft-neglected aspect of the Carnival tradition.
