* CKUT radio: Floodlines
author Jordan Flaherty on New Orleans community power

reconstruction model that guided major government responses to disaster in New

"Floodlines is a firsthand account of community, culture, and resistance in New
Orleans in the years before and after Katrina. The book weaves the
interconnected stories of Mardi Gras Indians, Arab and Latino immigrants,
public housing residents, gay rappers, spoken word poets, victims of police
brutality, out of town volunteers, and grassroots activists. From post-Katrina
evacuee camps, to torture testimony at Angola Prison, to organizing with the
family members of the Jena Six, Floodlines tells the stories behind the
headlines, from an unforgettable time and place in history."
