Series: What It Means To Say New Orleans

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, the levees broke, flooding much of New Orleans, killing over 1800 people and forcing tens of thousands, mostly African Americans, into exile, scattered in cities across the U.S. Most were never able to return as rents and housing prices soared, public housing was demolished, schools and hospitals were privatized. New Orleans after Katrina has become a template for urban removal dynamics unfolding in most maajor urban areas of the U.S. Added to the displacement, the demolition of public housing, health and education facilities is the militarization of police and incarceration of the poor.
