Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster



When Hurricane Katrina tore through New Orleans, hundreds of thousands were left behind to suffer the ravages of destruction, disease and death. The majority were black, and nearly all were poor. This work examines what Hurricane Katrina reveals about the fault lines of race and poverty in America – and what lessons we must take from the flood.
