The Context of White Supremacy hosts the second study session on Gary Rivlin’s Katrina: After The Flood. Mr. Rivlin is a White man; while working for the New York Times he covered the catastrophic engineering failure and negligence that drowned New Orleans in August of 2005. His 2015 publication dissects a decade of asymmetrical “recovery.” To be blunt, ten years of black New Orleanians being displaced and deliberately impeded from reconstructing their lives. His examination reviews all areas of people activity: the institution of charter schools, the destruction of public housing, and outright looting of funds designated for flood victims. The book begins with the infamous Crescent City Bridge confrontation, where mostly black citizens are rebuffed at gunpoint from entering the mostly White enclave of Gretna. We hope this text will offer a more complete understanding of Hurricane Katrina and it’s aftermath as a meticulously planned campaign of genocide against black New Orleanians.
