Tours by Judy Has Been Recommended by The New York Times

This tour is offered by Judy Geddes Bajoie, a descendant of George Geddes,  one of the members of the  Comite' des Citoyens, of the famed civil rights case, Plessy v Ferguson, 1892. Tour begins at the river, as would be expected; everything begins with the river.  Arrival of the slaves,  history of the French Quarter, stopping at The Cabildo,  where Plessy v Ferguson Case was  tried, to a slave auction site, is the progression of the tour. Along the way, we will make  a stop at the location  of L'Union and  LaTribune de la Nouvelle Orle'ans,  America's (first) daily black newspapers (Dr. Louis  Charles Roudanez),  while engaging in stories of people and events that shaped the 1950s, 1960s Civil Right Movement. A stop in Treme before proceeding to the final resting location of  Homer Plessy and  Dr. Louis  Charles Roudanez concludes the tour.
