Hardbeatnews, NEW ORLEANS, LA, Thurs. June 1, 2006: A groundbreaking exhibition that focuses on the historic links between St. Dominigue (Haiti) and Louisiana continues at The Historic New Orleans Collection in New Orleans.

Titled ‘Common Routes,’ the exhibition celebrates the ties between the American state and the Caribbean island through maps, paintings and artifacts of eras past, brought together from over three-dozen private collections in Europe, Puerto Rico and the U.S.

It begins with an examination of the island’s colonization and continues through the revolution by Toussaint L’Ouverture and the aftermath of that revolt that many claim is still being felt today as the poverty stricken nation struggles on.

It also touches on the impact of Haitian immigrants on the state. As officials of the Collection point out, “To this day the cultural imprint of the émigrés in Louisiana can be discerned in fields ranging from literature, music and theater to architecture, industry, law and philanthropy.”

The exhibition runs through Caribbean American Heritage Month, ending on June 30. For more information, log on to: http://www.hnoc.org/stdomingue/flash_commonroutes.html. – Hardbeatnews.com
