The plan for reviving the relationship between Manchester and New Orleans is simple.

Bring New Orleans artists, musicians, scholars etc. to Manchester and welcome Manchester folks to visit New Orleans.

Last month, we brought a New Orleans poet Chuck Perkins to Manchester.

He’s the video of his first visit (the first one was so successful there are bound to be many more):
