National Geographic

I woke up this morning to the alarm, then the dog licking my face and, lastly, a google alert got me on my feet.

My adorable dog and the exciting news to follow made my morning. The Baton Rouge newspaper, The Advocate, printed a piece about my oral history project in the New Orleans Ninth Ward (where I have roots). The article, Young Explorer, discusses  a grant I received from the National Geographic Society to conduct the research. After the story was printed this morning, I noticed on my stats that a lot of people were finding my blog via a google search.  If you guys were googling me because you are interested in participating in my project please contact me at and for more info please visit

The size of the photo makes me blush, but finding participants for the project is worth my mild discomfort.
