Floodlines: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six by Jordan Flaherty

We bring our focus to New Orleans, 5 years after hurricane Katrina powerfully ripped up much of the city and destroyed the levees, devastating the entire community; worst hit were the poor and Black communities, more because of governmental negligence than anything else; we’ll speak with community activists and organizers who have been struggling to reconstruct the city on a grassroots level; also, we’ll speak to New Orleans-based investigative journalist and author Jordan Flaherty about his experiences during Katrina and the more recent re-emergence of cultural growth in New Orleans.
