Goin' to New Orleans

Legal History blogging this week will be from New Orleans, where I will be at the Amistad Research Center. The Amistad Center holds many important African American history and civil rights history collections. I'll be looking especially at the papers of the American Committee on Africa, which may hold some secrets of a transnational 20th century American legal history story...

The Amistad Center is still recovering from Hurricane Katrina, and needs support from friends of history. The New Orleans Public Library was one of the LHB recommended legal history-related beneficiaries of your end-of-the-year charitable contributions for 2006, and NOPL also still needs your help. For information about how to support the Amistad Center, go here. For information about the New Orleans Public Library and for more ideas about how to support legal history, go here.

If any LHB readers will be at the Amistad Center this week, I can be found there TWTh, or via email off-hours.
