Women in Storyville
We head back to New Orleans to visit Storyville, the red-light district that made the city infamous in the early 20th century. Producer Christian Leus explores the history of the neighborhood and disentangles its complicated legacies of jazz, sex work, and social upheaval. Join Christian as she digs through archival audio and conducts new interviews with scholars to uncover what the myth of Storyville leaves out. Here, see more archival material from the district in its heyday.
