During my recent trip to New Orleans, I spent a night with my cousin Celia. The next morning she took me on a private Katrina tour, recounting her own experiences as well as what happened then and is happening now in our ancestral city. I’ve divided approximately 30 minutes of footage into topical segments, and will be publishing them one at a time. There’s a lot of information to absorb here. Much of it makes me very sad.
Note: Celia speaks of her “transplant kids”. She is a nurse, and at the time worked with children awaiting kidney transplants.
