BILOXI ORAL HISTORY PROJECT ONLINE

In 2008 Francis Lam conducted interviews for the SFA on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in an effort to document Biloxi's ethnic shrimping communities, a project completed through generous support from Louisiana Foods. That fieldwork is now part of our online archive. Listen to the interviews here, and view more photographs from the project on our Flickr page.

In addition, Francis, a regular contributor to Gourmet magazine, will be making posts about the project on Gourmet's blog throughout the next few weeks. Go here to read his latest entry.
