It's the birthday of Louisiana's (and America's) first African-American governor, P.B.S. Pinchback (1837), Zydeco legend Cleveland Chenier (1901) and trumpeter Teddy Riley (1901). Now back to today:

A Brief History of The Mascot Louisiana State Museum (6:00 PM) Local author Sally Asher looks back at the sensationalist New Orleans newspaper founded in 1882 that was in the news about as much as it was printing the news.

The evening features readings from Andrew Ward, Veronica Russell and burlesque artist Trixie Minx of Fleur de Tease. Complete details here.
