Rosedown: A Link to the Past - $25.00

LPB explores the history of West Feliciana's Rosedown Plantation.

The two-story home and its gardens were built by Daniel Turnbull and Martha Hillard Barrow Turnbull to resemble the beautiful gardens of France, England and Italy that they saw on their honeymoon in 1828. Completed in 1835, Rosedown Plantation's estate covered 3,500 acres and would eventually include 12-huge columns and two small ones, as well as three porches. The biggest attraction has always been the glorious gardens that Martha Turnbull continued expanded for the remainder of her life.

Rosedown went into decline until Catherine Fondren Underwood purchased the property in 1956 and restored it to its original splendor. Mrs. Underwood and her husband maintained the plantation until their deaths. Their son kept it for more than a decade before selling it.

As Rosedown appeared to be spiraling downward again, the State of Louisiana purchased the plantation. It is now an historic site, providing invaluable insights into the history of life on a southern plantation.

SIGNPOST TO FREEDOM: The 1953 Baton Rouge Bus Boycott - $25.00

A one hour documentary that recounts the circumstances and events that led to the nation's first large-scale boycott protesting segregation and then examines its impact on the evolution of grassroots civil rights activism across the country during the early years of America's Civil Rights Movement.

Not only did the boycott provide proof that African Americans could take a brave, unified, and peaceful stand against segregation, it also brought to light a specific, yet fundamental inequity suffered by most black Southerners, paying the same bus fare as whites, but having to stand up over empty seats, simply because they were black. Music by Grammy-winning artist Chris Thomas King.

The Spirit of A Culture: Cane River Creoles - $25.00

In a story that pre-dates America, the multi-cultural Creoles of Cane River, Louisiana see themselves as somewhere between black and white. The Spirit of a Culture: Cane River Creoles recounts the Cane River Creole identity struggle from colonial French Louisiana to today's Creole led multicultural renaissance - against the notion of race as a deciding feature of a population.

In order to understand the culture of the Creole community of Cane River, you have to understand their development as a people. This program takes viewers through the historical events that helped shaped them into who they are today. One of the most important facts that provides insight about the Cane River Creoles is that their ancestors, who were French, Spanish, African and Indian, always held onto the fact that they were citizens of France, long after the sale of the Louisiana Territory to America in 1803.

With guidance from the Louisiana Creole Heritage Center at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Bill Rodman and Flo R. Ulmer were able to secure the help of four scholars to help guide the project. Those scholars were Dr. Pete Gregory, Dr. Dayna Bowker Lee, Dr. Susan Dollar and Dr. Kathleen Byrd. Other advice came from the Cane River National Heritage Area.

"As producers, we felt that members from the Cane River Creole community should tell their own story," Ulmer said. "Five Cane River Creoles were chosen to explain the nuances of their culture and to relate where their future lies. Though their words you begin to understand why they do not consider themselves black or African-American, even though they have color, but rather Creole."

Cane River Creoles who participated included Terrel Delphin; Chairperson of the Advisory Council for the Louisiana Creole Heritage Center; author John Sarpy, Louis Metoyer, Cane River California Creole and publisher of Bayou Talk, Lair LaCour, whose MaMan dolls were designated by the state as the Bi-Centennial Doll, and Tracey Colson-Fontenot, a mother of four young Creole boys.
