Re: Placage
In Response To: Placage ()

Author Barbara Hambly has a set of fiction books which will give you a good background on this period in New Orleans and its surroundings. What I call getting history the easy way.

There is a main character featured throughout the series whose sister is in the "placage" system.

The first book in the series is "A Free Man of Color." Read that one and I think you will be hooked.
