As new residents continue to shape the economy and culture of New Orleans, the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) presents “Arrivals,” a three-part series of panel discussions to explore the history of new populations in the city. Developed in partnership with Louisiana Cultural Vistas columnist and Tulane University geographer Richard Campanella, “Arrivals” will investigate the origins, motivations, and impact on the city of immigrants during three pivotal time periods.

This panel discussion, moderated by David Johnson of Louisiana Cultural Vistas, includes the following participants: Dr. Raphael Cassimere, University of New Orleans; Dr. Emily Clark, Tulane University; and Dr. Larry Powell, author of "The Accidental City.”
On Wednesday, October 30, the “Arrivals” program will focus on Post-Civil War through Turn of Century. This panel, moderated by Dr. Michael Sartisky of the LEH, includes the following participants: Richard Campanella, Tulane University; Keith Weldon Medley, author of "We as Freemen: Plessy v. Ferguson: The Fight against Legal Segregation;” and Dr. Laura Kelley, Tulane University.
On Wednesday, November 13, the “Arrivals” program will focus on Post-Katrina. This panel, moderated by Brian Boyles of LEH, includes participants Rafael Delgadillo; Allison Plyer, Greater New Orleans Data Center; and more.
