On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Nearly 100,000 people found themselves stranded without food or shelter, revealing the deep vulnerability of the poorest black communities. The disaster was compounded by the government's slow response and relief efforts were hampered by media reporting of crime sprees. Black America Since MLK: And Still I Rise airs Nov. 15 & 22.
