SU alumnus and author Curtis J. Johnson recently visited the Baton Rouge campus to promote and discuss his book, Glimpses of Black Life along Bayou Lafourche. Johnson's book describes experiences of black people who lived throughout the Mississippi River-Bayou Lafourche Region of South Louisiana during the period 1875-1975. These writings cover four parishes (counties) including Saint James, Ascension, Assumption, and Lafourche. This area of Louisiana is steeped in American history, beginning in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase. Pictured is Johnson during a book talk in the John B. Cade Library, September 18, 2013.
