NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana)

New Orleans itself is fun. Feels like a neverending party town with music around the corner, movie shoots and a mandatory jazz concert at the Preservation Hall (unchanged since 1961)

A visit to the plantation and the slaves barraks deeply moved me

The shameful “business model” behind slavery where salves where assets, used to secure credit line, mortgaged to borrow more cash and buy more slaves… The saddest reality of this negation of human rights is that “Reproduction in the enslaved community meant new lines of credit were always available for the slave-owner”.

This is still haunting me to date.
