In remembrance of the spirit of New Orleans following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, World Footprints  will explore a sample of the multiple treasures that can be found in New Orleans.  We will share a wonderful conversation with Chef Leah Chase of Dokie Chase restaurant fame.  Chef Leah is an iconic figure in New Orleans.  She was the inspiration behind Tiana, the principle character in the Disney Animated Picture Princess and the Frog.  Then World Footprints will take listeners through two little known museums, the Free People of Color museum and the African-American museum.  Other stops on this audio trip include a tour through Treme and a visit to the famed Carosel bar in the Hotel Monteleone. New Orleans is a treasure trove of wonderful museums, rich history and cultural gumbo and today’s show will explore just a few of the treasure today.
