I discuss my experience filming the Creole segment of my documentary "The Descendants of Africa". The often misunderstood Creoles of Louisiana clarified a few things for me, upon my visit in 2000, and at a Creole conference in Las Vegas a few years after that. The Creoles are the subject of my newly completed play, "Blood Makes The Red River Flow", fiction but inspired by my visit and based on historical facts. I dedicate the play to them, and to the people of Louisiana loss in Hurricane Katrina. My play will have a staged reading on May 1st. Check out The Creole Heritage web site: http://creole.nsula.edu/
