Following the death of legendary New Orleans musician Allen Toussaint, another local musician, Glen David Andrews, sparked the idea to rename [Robert E.] Lee Circle as Allen Toussaint Circle, to commemorate and display a more appropriate memorial.  An online petition was launched to rechristen the city’s prominent landmark, which you can sign at http://www.thepetitionsite.com/278/962/766/#sign.  There is also a Facebook group called Allen Toussiant Circle that is dedicated to the propostition, and asking those who want to see the change to email the mayor at [email protected]
