Listen to an interview with journalist and activist Jordan Flaherty on the recently published book Floodlines on community power and resistance in New Orleans post Katrina.
Particularly this interview focuses on the struggle for public housing, access to education and against police brutality in New Orleans, while highlighting author Flaherty's critique on the hyper capitalist reconstruction model that guided major government responses to disaster in New Orleans.

"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."
