Challenging what you thought you knew about Sicilian New Orleans

Friday, March 22, 2019, 1:30 AM

In this talk, Dr. Justin Nystrom of Loyola University New Orleans will share some of the bigger surprises that came out of the research for his recent book, Creole Italian. This work documents the important role that Sicilian immigrants played in making New Orleans into one of the world's great food cities.  Justin Nystrom is an associate professor of history and directs the Center for the Study of New Orleans at Loyola University New Orleans. He is the author of New Orleans after the Civil War: Race, Politics, and a New Birth of Freedom and the forthcoming Creole Italian: How Sicilian Immigrants Shaped the Culture of America's Most Interesting Food Town.
