New Orleans history

For the first time in more than a century, the contents of a time capsule revealed Confederate secrets.

The copper box was unearthed from the pedestal that used to carry the statue of Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard in front of City Park.

This year's Irish Italian Isleños Parade is on Saturday in St. Bernard. And while most people are fairly familiar with the history of Irish and Italians in New Orleans, the same can't quite be said for Los Isleños. NolaVie's Brian Friedman sits down with Bill Hyland, director of the Los Isleños Museum Complex, to illuminate this history.

As the city marks its tricentennial year, curator and artist Dr. Fari Nzinga is making sure people of color are not left out of history or the conversation around it. Her exhibit, The Rent Is Too Damn High!, will open on Saturday, April 7 at the Crescent City Boxing Gym. Fari joined NolaVie's Kelley Crawford in the studio to talk about the work behind and in front of her exhibit.

In celebration of the city’s Tricentennial, NolaVie and New Orleans Historical bring you the series Who Did it Better: New Orleans Then and Now. In it, we look at aspects of the city’s history and their parallels in the present. Today we go to The Battle of New Orleans, in a segment we call Pirates and Nuns.
