Remembering Katrina: Will You Be There?

Here's Spike Lee discussing the making of his 2006 film When the Levees Broke, a documentary about the impact of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans:

Q: What would constitute a successfully revitalized New Orleans?

A: Well, I’ll say affordable housing for all. I’d say a great education system. A levee system that is sound. A lot of people have a lot of questions about how safe those levees are, even after Katrina. It’s what you want for any city to prosper.

Watch Shelton Shakespear Alexander perform "Will You Be There?" in "When the Levees Broke":

Your're welcome! Believe, me I have listened to this poetry a few times, and never tire of it. He is really making us FEEL what it was like and SEE it. It's powerful.
