Louisiana: The State We’re In

Louisiana: The State We’re In
»»» Tonight at 7:00 on LPB

We dedicate our entire program to recognize the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Is New Orleans and the state better off ten years later? We will look at the changes made to public education, health care, as well as levee and coastal protection efforts. Ten years later, Shauna Sanford tours New Orleans with retired Lt. General Russel Honoré, the man heralded as one of the heroes in the middle of chaos as residents of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast fought for survival. Rooftop pleas for help were not limited to residents in neighborhoods. Nurse Gail Gibson recalls how staff of the University Medical Center in downtown New Orleans was also waving out to rescue helicopters for attention as they were stranded without power and in desperate need of help to evacuate pregnant mothers and premature newborns. New Orleans native and actor Wendell Pierce has a new role since Katrina as a community rebuilder. His childhood home in Pontchartrain Park was destroyed, but ten years later, Pierce has been a guiding force to help rebuild his parents’ home as well as his old neighborhood. Evacuation plans fell woefully short for thousands of New Orleans residents during Katrina. Thanks to a local non-profit organization called Evacuteer.org, seventeen new locations have been designated as bus shuttle evacuation sites. A national call to artists resulted in the creation of Evacuspots; 14-foot high stainless steel sculptures that designate evacuation areas. One of the biggest changes to occur since Katrina was the overhaul of the New Orleans public school system. Parent and Times-Picayune reporter Jessica Williams shares her experience navigating the new system.
