About My Nola, My Story

My Nola, My Story was started by Dr. Shearon Roberts in 2017 to encourage her students at Xavier University of Louisiana to record and share the stories of people of color in New Orleans. These stories reflect snapshots of lived experiences of communities of color who have called New Orleans home. It serves as a testament that they were here, are here, and shaped the fabric of this historic, cultural space.
