New Orleans is so familiar with catastrophe, sometimes it feels like the way we answer it is part of our community character. We are defiant, we are resilient, we carry on, and we do it together.

He was brilliant and charismatic, and he’s since gone on to become the chef-in-residence of the Museum of the African Diaspora.
