This book provides a comparative and historical analysis of the integration of white and free black refugees coming from nineteenth century St. Domingue/Haiti to Louisiana.

Parham examines the different paths taken by these refugees and their descendants as they adapt to the complex social landscape they find in Louisiana, where both Anglo-American and Creole practices shape their experiences of race and culture in unique and often challenging ways.
