The Faubourg Tremé, Community, a brief story

*The city of New Orleans was founded on  this date in 1718 and we celebrate their Tremé neighborhood on this date in 1775.  

Faubourg Tremé was the oldest Black neighborhood in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Located north of the French Quarter in New Orleans, it was home to the first civil rights movement, the first Black daily newspaper L'Union, Black businesses, and more.  

Other landmarks include Congo Square and Saint Augustine Church.  The neighborhood is often left out of history books in spite of its very rich and important history.
