A Range of Complexions
In Response To: Who Are The Redbones? ()
This link is to an online exhibit by the New Orleans Public Library. It includes portraits of many New Orleans Creoles of color. Some like real estate mogul and philantropist Thomy Lafon and religous Mother Henriette Delille (who is a candidate for sainthood) are very fair-complexioned, while others like renowned composer and violinist Edmond Dede are very dark.
