New Orleans Jazz: Rebirth After Katrina by Jelly Roll Justice

“New Orleans Jazz:

First Year After Levees Broke”

by Jelly Roll Justice

“I could not put five years following the Storm into 35 minutes; indeed, I am reminded of Elie Weisel who said the hardest part of his books is editing out incidents and characters . . . ‘this was their last chance to survive after the Holocaust and now I kill them a second time.’  Each person who encountered Katrina and the failure of the levees and the aftermath deserves more than 35 minutes – but you do what you can do.”  

– Jelly Roll Justice
