Usually, when we speak about the Irish Diaspora to America, New Orleans is not among the cities that first come to mind as centers of Irish population and culture. We think of the city as a savory gumbo of Spanish, French, Creoles, Afro-Caribbean and Africans and pay little attention to the pull effect this strategically placed port city on the Mississippi might have had on an island with a long history of losing her population through outward migration. Years of research has demonstrated that the Irish are a fundamental part of the cultural fabric of New Orleans. The results are an adventurous, often tragic but ultimately triumphant history of Erin’s people in this most exotic of cities. It is a story of high drama, of great courage, of resourcefulness and determination, of faith in God, family, kin and community; it tells of great loss and even greater accomplishments and success. In short, it makes for an excellent story. We hope you will join us as Dr. Kelley explores these themes and argues that New Orleans should be considered as much an Irish city as a French, Spanish or Creole one. Lunch will be served. RSVP by Thursday, March 9 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143 or rachel@nojcc.org. MONDAY, MARCH 13 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM NO CHARGE MEMBERS / $10 NON-MEMBERS NEW ORLEANS JCC – UPTOWN
