Katrina in Black and White

Kia Gregory suggested I check out her story, "Flood of Emotion," in this week's Philadelphia Weekly. I'm glad I did. Gregory puts some perspective on what Hurricane Katrina meant for black America by weaving together accounts of what happened during the storm and its aftermath with the comments of prominent African Americans. The result is a perspective that much of the media has avoided. The story concludes that the racial scars left by the storm will linger a long time.
