march at the Ole & Nu Style Fel­las 20th an­niver­sary sec­ond line pa­rade in the his­toric Treme neigh­bor­hood on April 15, in New Or­leans, Louisiana. Tra­di­tional sec­ond line pa­rades are put on by so­cial aid and plea­sure clubs or­ga­nized by African-Amer­i­can com­mu­ni­ties and are held most Sun­days in New Or­leans. The pa­rades rep­re­sent a his­tory of sol­i­dar­ity, em­pow­er­ment and cul­tural pride within the African-Amer­i­can en­claves of the city. New Or­leans, orig­i­nally founded by the French in 1718, is mark­ing its 300th an­niver­sary this year.

The city be­came part of the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Pur­chase.
