"We're Not Forgotten": An Oral History From Lower Lafitte

Royal Moll
The Historic New Orleans Collection
/

Lower Lafitte, in Jefferson Parish, is a place steeped in history. But it’s also a town that has seen history repeat itself over and over again whenever a bad storm brings severe flooding. Royal Moll is a lifelong resident of lower Lafitte, and the Historic New Orleans Collection recorded this first-person narrative with her for their series, Nola Life Stories.

Sarah Holtz covers local history. Her work has also aired on Houston Public Media, Northern California Public Media, KFAI, KTOO, KUNM, WCAI, WGBH, and WWOZ.
Mark Cave is an oral historian and senior curator at the Historic New Orleans Collection.
