Subject

African Americans--Education
Maringouin, Louisiana

Description

Maringouin, Louisiana is a small town of just 1,100 people, 900 of whom can trace their ancestry back to the Maryland Jesuits' 1838 sale of 272 people. Many of those who were sold to Jesse Batey at the West Oak plantation have descendants who remain in Maringouin today. In this podcast, Georgetown American Studies major Jenna Clifford (GU '18) chats with descendant and leader of the GU272 Descendants Association, Sandra Green Thomas, about her family history and its relationship to the 1838 sale. Jenna also speaks with Georgetown Government professor, Doug Reed, about the relationship between the educational structures in Maringouin and disparate access to education across the country today.
