THE QUORUM: BLACKS, CREOLES, AND WHITES ARRESTED I

$20.00Price
A documentary by Maurice M. Martinez and Harriet J. Ottenheimer, Coedited by Bryan Houser

In the politically and racially charged atmosphere of the 1960s, The Quorum coffee house created a successful model for multicultural exchange. Opened in 1963 to persons from all racial backgrounds, The Quorum became a frequent target of segregationist harassment in New Orleans. In 1964 police raided The Quorum taking 73 people to jail and accusing them of things like “playing guitars out of tune.” Engaging in conversations without conclusion and booked them for disturbing the peace, “The Quorum” shows what happens when ordinary people become involved in extraordinary events.
