    Notes 
    • "... Esteves (d. 1908), was a sail and awning maker, a trustee of the Couvent School and the president of the «i»Comite des Citoyens«/i» (Citizens Committee), a group of Creole early civil rights activists who challenged the state's Jim Crow laws."
      http://nutrias.org/~nopl/exhibits/fmc/fmc3.htm

      " 'One of the earliest "benefactresses of black education' was Marie Bernard Couvent, a black African woman who had been a slave in her youth. According to her will, which was probated in 1837, she gave a lot to 'be in perpetuity devoted to the maintenance of a free school for the colored orphans of the Faubourg Marigny.'
      "According to the Creole historian, R. L. Desdunes, the «b»Couvent school «/b»was the best attended school during the time of slavery. It also boasted an all-black faculty. However, Desdunes gives a further clue to the lack of data on the role of black women: He saw that there was 'a grave error on the part of her contemporaries to have neglected transmitting to us the precise details in the life story of this generous person.' "
      From Louisiana Black Women: An Ignored History «i»by Jan Doherty
      http://www.loyno.edu/history/journal/1985-6/doherty.htm«/i»

      Arthur Estéves was president of the Citizens' Committee. He had earlier been instrumental in saving the Couvent School (established to educate destitute African American children) from decline and served on its board of directors. Estéves' company, Fauria and Estéves, manufactured sails, awnings, flags and tarpaulins, and operated at several locations in New Orleans. Desdunes wrote that he was "a man on whom the people could count in every kind of venture."
