Hidden Jewel in the Crescent City

Hidden Jewel in the Crescent City 3

Located in the New Orleans, Louisiana on Esplanade Avenue is Le Musée de f.p.c.  This Greek Revival residence is a museum that focuses on “interpreting, preserving and presenting the story and material culture of free people of color.”  This hidden jewel holds stories that have been in secret and confined to archival boxes, out-of-print books and yellowing musical scores.  It is unique in sharing the stories of New Orleans.  The museum’s collection and exhibition is owned by the founders, Beverly and Dr. Dwight McKenna.  The McKenna’s collection is jointly located in Le Musée and the McKenna Museum of African American Art, also located in New Orleans.
