One of the popular attractions in the parade was Jordan Noble, an African American drummer who played his drum in three American wars, including serving under Gen. Andrew Jackson during the Battle of New Orleans. “Old Jordan,” as he was affectionately known, tells his story to young readers in this rhyming picture storybook.
In her signature self-deprecating and hilarious style, humor essayist Rose Madeline Mula gripes about growing old.

In this collection of comical compositions, readers can skip around from one laugh-out-loud essay to the next while enjoying the author’s endless wit and charm.

Beginning with Toby’s invitation to Paul’s Bar Mitzvah and ending with the cutting of the challah and the traditional dance called the horah, the reader is led through the experience of this ancient ceremony.
Big Chief of the Guardians of the Flame, philosopher, family man, and advocate for education, Donald Harrison took center stage in life. He demanded a well-deserved respect from his peers.

Out of a desire to give back to his community, Harrison and his wife, Herreast, founded the Guardians Institute, a cultural arts center for New Orleans youths.
