Stand on the Moonwalk with your back to St. Louis Cathedral, looking out over the Mississippi River. Algiers Point, where some of the first enslaved Africans were brought to Louisiana, is across the river to your left.
While you are on the bank of the Mississippi River, listen to 1a. The Transatlantic Slave Trade to Louisiana.
On the way to Site 2: The Merieult House, listen to 1b. The Collapse and Renewal of the Atlantic Trade.
