ACS Looks to NOLA
FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story has been dominating the airwaves for the past few months. Now, as the series prepares for Tuesday (4.04) night’s finale, the focus is shifting to the second season set in New Orleans.
Today In NOLA 9.9.15
Today in New Orleans, catch the classic Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday at the Prytania. House of Blues is hosting Blues Night 2015 and Craig Kraemer is giving a talk about post-Katrina podcasts. For your musical enjoyment, jam with Heartless Bastards at One Eyed Jacks. On this day in 1965, Hurricane Betsy hit the city, killing 76 people. Now, more events to distract you from hurricane season.
Final Round of K10 Remembrances Begins
The crescendo of Katrina remembrances has peaked. While events will continue through the anniversary of the levee breaches, on Saturday (8.29) a day of service marked the exact anniversary of the Storm’s landfall. After a wreath laying ceremony, Mayor Landrieu delivered yet another speech, but this address aimed to draw the remembrances to a close.
A recollection from Chris Romaguera
People joined today's “The World’s Largest Secondline” from spots all along the route, but one of the larger gathering spots was on Japonica and N. Galvez. There, on the levee wall, an annual ritual of prayers, song and dance was held.
Five From '05
Looking Back at Daily Life in August 2005
At this point, the average New Orleanian has been bombarded with so many K10 stats that honorary doctorates in math are in order. NoDef’s staff decided to eschew another day of spreadsheets in favor of five fast markers of a few of the ways that our daily lives have changed since 2005. We offered up some factoids about sports a decade ago, lace we ate and partied—accompanied by a serious mention of voting.
"Don't Call Me Resilient"
For two weeks, New Orleans has been inundated with coverage of the Katrina/Federal Flood. And more than a few locals are sick of it. In particular, the City’s official slogan “resilient” is drawing fire. After a week of social media backlash, viral signs are now popping up to critique the catchphrase.
K10: POTUS Edition
Obama Marks Katrina Anniversary (Video)
Wednesday (8.27) was a beautiful New Orleans day, perfect for a presidential visit. President Barack Obama spoke at the recently opened Andrew P. Sanchez Community Center (1616 Caffin Avenue) in the Lower 9th Ward. The POTUS touched on government failure, income inequality, and lots about the Recovery.
Michael “heckuva job Brownie” Brown is back. First, presidential candidate Jeb Bush released a video touting in his hurricane management bonafides that includes some footage of the former Florida Gov alongside Brownie. However, Bush is not the only one feeling forgiving about the former FEMA chief. Brownie, himself, penned a longform piece for Politico titled, “Stop Blaming Me for Hurricane Katrina.”
K10: Gracias Latinos
By Christopher Louis Romaguera
Casa Borrega (1719 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard) will be hosting a street party called “Gracias Latinos” this Saturday, August 29th, on the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina's landfall. The event is intended to honor the estimated 10 to 14 thousand undocumented workers who arrived in New Orleans during the first year after the levees were breached.
K10: La Renaissance de la Nouvelle-Orléans
An Op-Ed by Alexandre Vialou of nolafrancaise.com
Ten years ago, Hurricane Katrina and the failure of the federal levees destroyed lives and the physical infrastructure of the City of New Orleans. With it, the indigenous connection that had existed between New Orleanians and their French cultural heritage for 297 years was -yet again- put to test. Iconic Cajun and Creole restaurants had to close, local french-singing musicians were scattered all around the nation. Uncertainty even surrounded the fate of Carnival in 2006.
