SOUL SEARCHING: A VICTORIAN-STYLE SÉANCE

Historian Melissa Daggett will team with spiritual medium Juliet Pazera to interpret the supernatural rituals popular among 19th-century Creoles of color who adhered to the beliefs of Spiritualism. Daggett’s recent book, Spiritualism in New Orleans: The Life and Times of Henry Louis Rey, examines Le Circle Harmonique, a gathering of francophone free people of color who sought guidance from the dead at public séances in the tumultuous years spanning the antebellum era through Reconstruction. The period-furnished Hermann-Grima Historic House Museum will be the setting for a reenacted Victorian-style séance that is sure to offer untold surprises.
