Nigerian American Wedding

Lidia follows Liz and Ray as they make final preparations for a wedding that will showcase their love for the Big Easy. Nationally renowned scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. lends cultural perspective on this traditional New Orleans wedding as Mardi Gras Indians decked out in brightly colored feathers dance to the beat and guests enjoy New Orleans jambalaya, crawfish, and pralines.
