The Crescent City Sepia Host was conceived in 1950 by New Orleans photographer Marion J. Porter. Although not explicitly stated in the or cover, this "buyer's and tourist guide" obviously targeted an African American audience through its emphasis on Black businesses, churches, and entertainment venues. A "who's who" of African American leaders, both men and women, in New Orleans is featured here.
