The Good Times Rolled comes from the French phrase laissez les bons temps rouler, which symbolizes the spirit of the city of New Orleans. Festive and flamboyant, the legendary Crescent City is a cauldron in which the spicy flavors of many different cultures and races have blended for nearly three centuries. Bernard Hermann's images capture the unique intensity of New Orleans's African American community and in doing so reveal the true soul of this exotic American city.
