Tonight marks the opening of Purchased Lives: The American Slave Trade from 1808 to 1865, at the Vermilion Living History and Folklife Park. Free and open to the public, the preview is from 6:00 to 8:00 this evening. Produced by the Historic New Orleans Collection, the traveling exhibit will be on display through July 31st; after tonight's preview, normal hours of 10:00 - 4:00 Tuesday to Sunday will resume. A dark period in America's history, the exhibit chronicles the time from the ending of the international slave trade in 1805, to the abolition of all slavery in 1865. Over those 60 years, an estimated 2 million people were forcibly trafficked among the states and territories.
The New Orleans Oyster Festival is this weekend, and the weather's going to be fine. And hot! Sunday's high is projected at 97F, and even though it's not horribly humid, that's hot. I made a batch of simple syrup earlier this week, which makes it easy to make a glass of lemonade or limeade on demand; fill a glass with ice, squeeze in a lemon or lime, add simple syrup to sweeten to taste, and top with water. I like to muddle up a sprig of mint, basil, or rosemary in mine on occasion.
