Le Musée de f.p.c.

Website: https://www.lemuseedefpc.com

Le Musée de f.p.c., a historic house museum, is one of the country’s few attractions dedicated exclusively to preserving the material culture of and telling to the story of free people of color.

The founders of this repository strive through their collection of documents, paintings and decorative arts to present, interpret and preserve the history and culture shared by so many  free people of African descent in New Orleans and throughout the country.

Free people of color, often abbreviated f.p.c., is the term used to refer to Blacks who were born free or manumitted prior to the Civil War.  Also referred to as gens de couleur libres, their presence in New Orleans is recorded as early as 1722.  Although there were enclaves of free people of color who numbered well over a quarter million residing throughout the United States during the antebellum period, New Orleans and south Louisiana were home to one of the oldest and largest populations of such.  On the eve of the Civil War, in New Orleans alone, there resided 18,000 who owned and paid taxes on $15 million of property.

Stella Jones Gallery

According to the site: “Stella Jones GALLERY was the culmination of a dream in 1996 for my late husband, Harry and I.   We had been avid collectors for some time and decided that we wanted to make African American, contemporary African and Caribbean fine art accessible to all. We were fortunate to count many important artists as friends, including Dr. Samella Lewis, who became instrumental in guiding us through the process as gallery owners.”
