I grew up a devout catholic, listening to zydeco music, eating gumbo and speaking Creole French, a typical southwestern Louisiana upbringing. I completed my undergraduate education at Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans and my graduate work at Louisiana State University. Currently I am an Associate Professor of History at Xavier University of Louisiana." This week in Louisiana history. February 20, 1811.
