"In 1999, The Backstreet Cultural Museum established a new tradition, its annual All Saints Day Second Line. It is held to honor those who passed during the year and to pay tribute to jazz funerals in the continuing mission to keep this important cultural tradition alive"-- Geraldine Wyckoff.
The video features Oswald Jones, Grand Marshall, the Treme Brass Band and All Saints' Altar.
The event is sponsored by D. W. Rhodes Funeral Home, the Neighborhood Story Project, Charbonnet Family Services, the Departments of Anthropology and Urban Studies at the University of New Orleans, and the Boebel family.
