About the Speaker:
Mark Charles Roudané, a native of New Orleans, is an educator, author, and public speaker. Mr. Roudané wrote The New Orleans Tribune, An Introduction to America’s First Black Daily Newspaper. His articles have appeared in the South Atlantic Review, the Journal of the Louisiana Creole Research Association, New America, and the Atlantic. Mark was featured as the keynote speaker for the 150th Anniversary of the Tribune at Dillard University, and has presented on Tribune history at Georgia State University, Savannah State University, the Louisiana Public History Forum, the Louisiana Creole Research Association, and the Friends of the Cabildo. Mr. Roudané is a member of LA Creole.
Mr. Roudané’s research updates are available at facebook.com/roudanezhistory and on the website roudanez.com. Mark hopes this inspirational and underrepresented history will reach wider audiences and foster greater appreciation for the civil rights movement born in New Orleans 150 years ago.
