All Things New Oreans: March 9, 2017

Thursdays 1:30p & 6:35p

This week on All Things New Orleans we'll speak with Xavier University of Louisiana's Keller Endowed Chair in the Humanities and professor of African American Music, Dr. Michael White. He'll share information about the upcoming Culture of New Orleans Series, "The Sacred and the Sinful: Hymns and Blues in New Orleans Jazz," coming up Sunday, March 12, at 2pm in the University Center McCaffrey Ballroom.

We'll also check in with the New Orleans Police Department's liaison to the city's LGBT community, Sgt. Frank Robertson. A 15 year veteran to the police department, Robertson helps his fellow officers navigate through a community that may be reluctant to approach law enforcement.

Then we'll wrap up this week's show with our monthly segment "Roll With It" featuring writer and videographer, Big Red Cotton.
