Louisiana is marking the second anniversary of our African American Heritage Trail with its first expansion plus this new website, AStoryLikeNoOther.com. I announced the news today at St. Augustine Church in New Orleans, one of the original 26 trail sites and the spiritual anchor of the Tremé neighborhood.

If you’re not familiar with it, Tremé is America’s oldest African American neighborhood. It is the place where jazz was born. And it is home to four sites along the trail. Today’s announcement coincides not only with the start of Black History Month but with the beginning of the neighborhood’s bicentennial commemoration. Happy birthday, Tremé!

The new trail sites are. . .

The addition of seven new trail sites will take you to even more parts of our state, enriching the story of Louisiana’s black heritage along the way. They also add to the mix some of the incredible cultural assets of Louisiana’s State Parks.

And there’s one more site. This one.

Today, we also launched the site you’re on right now: AStoryLikeNoOther.com. Think of it as your first stop on the journey. Before you set out, there are few things you won’t want to miss:

  • Watch the opening video featuring Grammy Award winner Chris Thomas King (guitar and vocals) with music arranged by New Orleans composer Jay Weigel.
  • Explore all the trail sites using the interactive map and image gallery.
  • Hear some surprising stories, narrated by Academy Award winner Louis Gossett, Jr. These can be found on many of the site pages linked from the Explore map.
  • Download free itineraries to follow the trail one region at a time.
  • Sign up to get the iPhone app that’s in development. We will let you know when it’s ready.
  • Keep up with what’s happening by subscribing to the blog, fanning the trail on Facebook, or following it on Twitter.

View additional coverage of the African American Heritage press conference.

So welcome to the next chapter. I’m glad you’re here. It’s going to be a great journey!
