J'Ouvert 2011's Bourgeois will follow in this modern tradition. Bourgeois is inspired by the pre-emancipation carnivals of the French plantation owners of the period (1783-1805). These pre-lentern celebrations were exclusive to the upper and middle class French and did not include that of the African slave population, except for the privy talented few who entertained the Bourgeois at their exclusive events...
