New Orleans is easily one of my favorite cities in the United States. I’ve visited five times in my life: in 1984 for the World’s Fair; in 2009 for the Alpha Phi Alpha General Convention (and a vacation afterwards); in 2011 for the International Bullying Prevention Association conference (where it will be returning in 2016!), in 2013 for Halloween and as a stop on my #BlackVampireProject tour; and finally 2015 for the briefest of vacations.
I venture out a little more each time I visit. Highlights of this trip include the New Orleans Museum of Art, the New Orleans Healing Center, and Congo Square. Enjoy the photos!
