Nos Hommes et Notre Histoire

The cover of the first edition, published in 1911 in Montreal. In The Negro in Louisiana, Charles B. Rousseve writes that Nos Hommes et Notre Histoire was "at the time of its publication, the only historical and biographical record of the free people of color in Louisiana by a descendant of this group." And it remained for many years one of the few books in any language to celebrate the achievements of Louisiana's Creoles of color.
