I don't remember too much about New England's role in this in "Evangeline" either.

Although to tell the truth I've tried to drive that poem out of my mind to the extent I could.

I know but it’s so central to the Harlem Renaissance isn’t it?

Every Passover I remark that you don't need divine punishment to explain Jews' getting lost in the desert for 40 years.

I just figured no one could agree on the best route. "The traffic's gonna be insane through the Negev." "Yeah, but there's construction on the Sinai, and two lanes are closed."

Yes, there's a lot of cross-over, obviously. My point was that Creole at least might be Black and thus connected to Harlem, whereas Cajun is likely not.

I agree with might be Black, but “thus”…no. 

Per @voyager one of the only two plausible Cajun dishes on the menu, the gumbo, lists “creole chicken” as an ingredient. There is a Nashville hot chicken sandwich, celebrating Harlem’s historic links with Tennessee (I made that up).
