Abstract:
In New Orleans, Social Aid and Pleasure Clubs and Mardi Gras Indian parades transmit histories of “coming out” from devaluing practices of exclusion. These performances make apparent the city’s memoryscapes of race, the geographical dimensions of cultural memory that play a critical role in confrontations with regimes of racial formation and representation.
