McNeese Fall 2016 SAGE Series Set

(September 16, 2016) McNeese State University will kick off its fall 2016 SAGE series with a lecture on “Creole World: PCreole World Book coverhotographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere” by acclaimed New Orleans photographer Richard Sexton at 3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 26, in the SEED Center.

SAGE offers a series of short lectures and discussions on Monday afternoons in the SEED Center centered on a specific theme each fall and spring.

In his book with the same title, Sexton will talk about the historically rich, interconnected Creole world between New Orleans and Latin Caribbean cities with similar colonial histories such as Cuba, Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia and Haiti. He became intrigued with this Creole world after traveling to Central and South America as a young man.
