Growing up in Mobile, Alabama, Margaret Brown '94 couldn't wait to get out of state. Two years ago, though, the filmmaker returned to tell the story of the city's two annual Mardi Gras celebrations—one white and one black. Brittain Youngblood '07 was among the court of 2007 Mardi Gras Queen Helen Meaher (above). The documentary, The Order of Myths, is out on DVD in January, followed by a PBS airing February 24.
