New Orleans
6/04-6/11
Sioux City
Every place has its history. But what is it about New Orleans that makes it more than just the sum of the events that have happened there? What is it about the spirit of the people who live there that could produce a music, a cuisine, an architecture, a total environment, the mere mention of which can bring a smile to the face of someone who has never even set foot there? What is the meaning of a place like that, and what is lost if it is lost? Join long-time New Orleans (and Sioux City) resident Linda Santi for this two-part series as we explore the unique attributes of the town often called the most-Euro- pean city in America, the most African city in America, the northern-most outpost of the Caribbean, and not co- incidentally - the most American of American cities.
