Descripción del producto

CHERISHED MEMORIES takes a memorable journey back to New Orleans of the 1950s. Professor Beverly Jacques Anderson shares stories from her childhood and from her elementary school classmates, providing a fascinating look at
the experience of growing up in the Creole culture of the Seventh Ward of New Orleans. This culture indelibly shaped the character, personality, and aspirations of Anderson and her elementary school classmates, many of whom became hard working,
family-oriented, service–oriented, productive, self-assured citizens.

Creole culture in the Seventh Ward was rooted in close family ties, hard work, creativity, high expectations, independence, the Golden Rule, Catholicism, shared language/manner of speaking, and a shared sense of belonging to a unique community. Teachers, parents, and principals—all African Americans—valued education and set high standards for student achievement. According to interviews with twelve of the author’s classmates, these beliefs, along with the unwavering support of parents and teachers, helped to produce competitive individuals in all walks of life. The Creole culture was also rooted in racial, ethnic, and
religious segregation that affected individuals
in surprising ways.

Anderson also examines the history of public and Catholic education for children of color in the Seventh Ward of New Orleans and addresses the impact of the school on the community and vice versa.

Explore this fascinating community and its educational history with Cherished Memories.

I am a former resident of New Orleans (40 years) and the seventh ward. My brother and I are former students of Andrew Bell and Joseph S. Clark Senior High School. I can also say that I was a student at Clark at the same time that Alma, Alva & Denise were there. I still have my JS Clark Bulldog 1957 - 58 Yearbook because I moved from New Orleans before Katrina. When I first saw this book on Amazon, I hesitated for a few weeks before making the purchase. As a former resident of NOLA & the seventh ward, I bought it. I saw a lot of the teacher interest in the students in my elementary school that Beverly speak of in her book. I remember several teachers who had a positive influence in my life. Your neighbor, community and church took care of their children. I also personally saw the prejudices that occurred because of the darkness or lightness of someones skin. I was looking at the yearbook with my youngest daughter and she ask me if I went to an integrated school like she did. My answer to her was NO; the students who looked white were black but their skin was lighter and sometimes whiter than some caucasians. This book is a true experience of life as a Creole in New Orleans.

Provides insight into New Orleans and Creole culture of mid 20th century. Though there are spots of repetitiveness, reminds us of some of the parental and community interest in our young that seems to have been lost over the last forty years.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Startling realizations and history of New Orleans in the 1950s 24 de agosto de 2011
Por Charles E. Day - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
This is a book with startling realizations of the personal impact of Hurricane Katrina, a city rebuilding from disaster,and the history and traditions around family life in New Orleans in the 1950s - especially from the perspective of a Catholic Seventh Ward Creole! An accomplished educator, researcher and community activist pauses from work and other responsibilities to share details from dozens of interviews, personal experiences and unspoken knowledge of the "class within a class" system which still has relevance today. While the stories cover a wide range of teachers, parents and students who have experienced different and fascinating levels of success, it remains now as it was then: "we do not choose our cultures, we belong to them" (Aime Cesaire, in James Baldwin's Nobody Knows My Name). Cherished Memories is a must read, no matter your culture!
