Summary

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina slammed into the Gulf Coast states of Louisiana and Mississippi. Although the storm devastated the region and its citizens, the desolation left in its wake did not extend across racial and class lines equally. Combining original research and advocacy, Hurricane Katrina: America's Unnatural Disaster questions the efficacy of the national and global responses to Katrina's central victims, African Americans. This collection of polemical essays explores the extent to which African Americans and others were, and are, disproportionately affected by the natural and man-made forces that caused Hurricane Katrina. This engaged study keenly demonstrates that the ways in which we view our history and life have serious ramifications on modern human relations, public policy, and quality of life.
