What people are saying:

The name of the museum is called the so-called colored people, but in fact it mainly refers to black people. Before the Civil War, there were some free blacks in the South, some were frees, and some were runaway slaves. Because New Orleans was more tolerant of blacks, they were concentrated here. The museum has a large number of files, such as free agent certificates. Educational significance is relatively great.
