Contents
No American city's history better illustrates both thepossibilities for alternative racial models and the role of the law in shaping
racial identity than New Orleans, Louisiana, which prior to the Civil War was
home to America's most privileged community of people of African descent. In
the eyes of the law, New Orleans's free people of color did not belong to the
same race as enslaved Africans and African-Americans. While slaves were
"negroes,” free people of color were gens
de couleur libre, creoles of color, or simply creoles. New Orleans's
creoles of color remained legally and culturally distinct from "negroes”
throughout most of the nineteenth century until state mandated segregation
lumped together descendants of slaves with descendants of free people of color.
