Prof. of Sociology, Loyola Univ.-New Orleans). A racial palimpsest is created through the layering of one racial system on top of another. Such a palimpsest was created in southern Louisiana as the area was variously administered by the French, Spanish and Americans. Dr. Parham's Race and Difference Colloquium talk examines the emergence and social consequences of living under the influence of a racial palimpsest by engaging in a two hundred year comparative-historical examination of the migration and integration of white and free black refugees fleeing the Haitian Revolution for New Orleans in the early nineteenth century and tracing the contrasting paths their descendants take into the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This is a rare historical case study where it is possible to follow the rocky path of racial integration for free black immigrants over two hundred years. The study challenges current theorists of race and migration concerning the future direction of race and the color line in generations to come. + Woodruff Library, Jones Room (RM 311) Campus Events
