I just finished photography for a directory of non-Catholic African-American Churches in the Cane River National Heritage Area. It was an assignment made difficult because many of the churches are built from essentially the same plan, so the chore was to shot them as individuals. These churches are significant because most were chartered just after the War between the States by former slaves, in a French colonial region that had been predominately Roman Catholic. This is St. Andrew's Baptist Church, in a rural area south of Natchitoches. Note it was named for a Saint, not uncommon in this Catholic area.
