Benjamin M. Palmer

As pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans, his Thanksgiving sermon in 1860 had a great influence in leading Louisiana to join the Confederate States of America. After 1865 he was minister in the Presbyterian Church in the United States. Palmer was born in Charleston, South Carolina, to Edward Palmer and the former Sarah Bunce. He was educated at Amherst College from 1833 to 1834. He taught school for two years and then attended the University of Georgia from which he graduated with a bachelor's degree in 1838.

One of the reasons it was built, says John Magill, head of research at the Historic New Orleans Collections, was to replace the French Opera House, which burned to the ground in 1919. The auditorium was part of a planned municipal complex that was intended to fill much of what is now Louis Armstrong Park as well as extending along Basin Street. The Responsibility of Déclassé Intellectuals. Hasta Siempre, Comandante. "Hasta Siempre, Comandante", or simply "Hasta Siempre", is a 1965 song by Cuban composer Carlos Puebla.

Hasta Siempre, Comandante

The song's lyrics are a reply to revolutionary Che Guevara's farewell letter when he left Cuba, in order to foster revolution in the Congo and later Bolivia,[1] where he was captured and killed. The lyrics recount key moments of the Cuban Revolution, describing Che Guevara and his role as a revolutionary commander. The song became iconic after Guevara's death, and many left-leaning artists did their own cover versions of the song afterwards. The title is a part of Guevara's well known saying "¡Hasta la victoria siempre!

" ("Until victory, always! "). The song has been covered numerous times. Metrical structure[edit] The Ballad of Finis Shelnutt *LINK* "The man is a walking glitz machine, from the diamonds on his Rolex to his gold-framed glasses to the silver cross dangling on his chest under his half-open shirt.

Harlan County War. The Harlan County War, or Bloody Harlan, was a series of coal mining-related skirmishes, executions, bombings, and strikes (both attempted and realized) that took place in Harlan County, Kentucky during the 1930s.

Harlan County War

The incidents involved coal miners and union organizers on one side, and coal firms and law enforcement officials on the other.[1] The question at hand: the rights of Harlan County coal miners to organize their workplaces and better their wages and working conditions. It was a nearly decade-long conflict, lasting from 1931 to 1939. Before its conclusion, an indeterminate number of miners, deputies, and bosses would be killed, state and federal troops would occupy the county more than half a dozen times, two acclaimed folk singers would emerge, union membership would oscillate wildly, and workers in the nation's most anti-labor coal county would ultimately be represented by a union.

Guest Editorial: Why Musicians Don't Get Paid—A New Orleans Musician's View

Photo by Marc Pagani. This letter is in response to Jan Ramsey’s Mojo Mouth blog posted last week. Dear Jan: I’m writing today about your online op-ed about musicians’ pay. Why Are Frenchmen Street Musicians Undervalued? - OffBeat Magazine. On June 6, writer Chelsea Brasted published a piece that interviewed musicians and others about how musicians are (or should be) paid when they play on Frenchmen Street.

The musicians she spoke to, of course, complained (and rightfully so) that they were not being compensated fairly because they were obligated to work for tips, or a percentage of the bar ring, and not a guarantee. Club owners had varying views, depending on whether there was a cover charge or not. However, many musicians can, will and do continue to play for an unknown wage.

The fact of the matter is that if one set of musicians refuse to play the gigs on Frenchmen because they aren’t being guaranteed a certain fee, another band or musician who may be less needful of a guarantee will step up to play. These are the facts. Does New Orleans Need a Night Mayor? - OffBeat Magazine. Cultural Economy - City of New Orleans.
