Oil Prices and Louisiana (5:47) Crude oil prices have dropped from close to $110 per barrel last summer to around $50 per barrel in January.

Creole WWII Vets (12:40) In honor of Black History Month, we head to Cane River country to recognize three Creole veterans who served in WWII. Pa-Joe, John and Tony are true examples of our Greatest Generation with service in the Army, Navy and Merchant Marines. But as they fought an enemy overseas this trio also battled against prejudice when they returned home. It’s a story you can also watch and share on LPB’s Louisiana Digital Media Archive. SHARE
