Today's show will find World Footprints traveling to the crown jewel of Louisiana's River Road, revisiting a dark chapter in American history, and uncovering the best that New Orleans has to offer.
The Houmas House in Darrow, Louisiana is an antebellus plantation and sister property of the famous Greenbrier Resort in Virginia. This historical jewel sits between New Orleans and Baton Rouge and contains a treasure trove of history within its walls. We were pleased to spend a day with the planation's colorful owner, entrepreneur Kevin Kelly and learn what he is doing to preserve Houmas House as a living history and decorative arts showcase.
Then, the greatest act of slave resistance in American history took place in 1811 just outside of New Orleans and has remained largely untold, until now. Author Daniel Rasmussen joins us to discuss his book, American Uprising: The Untold Story of America's Largest Slave Revolt, and shed new light on the great American paradox--slavery.
Finally, native New Orleanian and travel writer Laura Martone is the author of the Moon Travel Guide to New Orleans and she stops by to offer an insider's guide to the best that New Orleans has to
Afro State of Mind by Lurie Daniel Favors provides a critical analysis of issues and current events impacting the Black community. Lurie is the author of Afro State of Mind: Memories of a Nappy Headed Black Girl, a story that uses one girl's experience with hair and colorism to explore race, history and identity.
This week's episode is called Shopping While Black. The recent reports of high profile cases of retail racial profiling at Barneys and Macy's have their roots in a much deeper history. We will explore the legacy of Jim Crow and examine how racism evolved from the plantation to the luxury story. We will also take a look at how Jay Z's involvement with Barneys impacts the case.
Author Christopher Rice joins host Robin Milling over lunch at The Cecil in Harlem to talk about his first supernatural novel, The Heavens Rise which is a page-turner featuring a 'Louisiana swamp mind-control parasite atmosphere.' Chris returns to New Orleans he says to give the community a kindness post Katrina. Compared to his first book A Density of Souls, where he trashed everyone he went to high school with, he is now paying homage to the people of the city and their desire to see it thrive.
Chris says that of all his novels The Heavens Rise is the most cinematic and he would want to be involved in writing the screen adaptation. He may come full circle as he originally moved to Los Angeles to write screenplays; surprising even himself by writing a book.
As the son of Anne Rice and his late father Stan who was a creative writing professor and poet, writing was inevitable. Chris reveals his father read him Tin Tin as a bedtime story while mom favored singing show tunes to lull him to sleep!
Lunch with Chris at The Cecil in Harlem, named for the former hotel, was prepared by Chef de cuisine J.J. It's Afro Asian new American cuisine featured Oxtail dumplings, spicy crispy ginger squid, and crispy okra fries. He brought his influences from Ghana, steeping himself in African markets, and preparing meals alongside the locals. At The Cecil he adds green apples to curry, and perry perry sauce to prawns. Save room for dessert with their peanut opera; sponge cake layered with peanut butter and chocolate and flourless chocolate cake with beany seed brittle.
And watch for a second supernatural thriller from Christopher set on a plantation in the deep South.

It's another crazy episode of Paranormal Addiction Radio! David Childers from Delta Paranormal Project is visiting us this week so it is going to a fun evening full of laughs and a few surprises.
THE NEW BEGINNING Of Delta Paranormal Project ! In June 2001 David Childers and Steven Ellis founded GHX or Ghost Hunters Xtreme .On a hot summer night the two guys and a group of 6 decided they wanted to try out this paranormal kick that was going around. So they loaded up in a green Astro Van and headed to a local cemetary armed with nothing but 3 recorders, an IR camera, 3 flashlights, and a digital camera.When the group arrived at the abandoned, grown-up cemetary they noticed a thickness in the air and the creepiness of the moss hanging from the willow tree as the light of the full moon reflected off of it. After about 3 hours of multiple questions and picture taking, the group decided to head home and go over the evidence. After an hour of listening to the recorders we came across a woman's voice responding to this question.
"Did you die in anguish?" The response was "No!" Now keep in mind there was not one single female with us on this particular evening. This was a Class A evp!!!! This sent chills up our spines and from then on we were hooked. Over the next 9 years we have investigated numerous homes, cemetaries, and local area Landmarks. These would include: Linden Plantation, McRaven, Duff Green Mansion, an old civil war hospital,The Mcnutt House with ( Patrick Burns from TRU TV'S Haunting Evidence and Travel Channels Paranormal Challage, Mansfield Reformitory , Parkview Hospital with(Jeremiah Riggs from WWE Tough Enough, Daisy Of Love, UFC AND MMA) , River Chicks , Futrell House and Khun Hospital.

Thomas and his mother Carrie was sold in 1855 along with 24 other slaves on the plantation. The slaves valued at $18,900 dollars in 1855.
Thomas met and married Amanda Breland Richardson in 1880. They gave birth to five childen. Annie, Thomas, Golene, Sophia and John. All five children were born in St. Helena Parish. My great grandfather Thomas Richardson were born in 1886.
