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. Regardless of whether the Baton Rouge bus boycott is viewed as a success or failure, the boycott's impact on the larger civil rights movement is indisputable. 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.

A Summer of Birds Book - $27.00

In A Summer of Birds, award-winning journalist and essayist Danny Heitman sorts through the facts and romance of Audubon's summer at Oakley, a season that clearly shaped the destiny of the world's most famous bird artist.

He considers the financial straits that led to Audubon's employment at Oakley as a private tutor to fifteen-year-old Eliza Pirrie, Audubon's family history, his flamboyance as a master of self-invention, his naturalist and artistic techniques, and the possible reasons for his dismissal. Illustrations include photographs of Oakley House now a state historic site, Audubon's paintings from his Oakley period, and portraits of the Pirrie family members.
