After the events of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, African-American poet and activist Jayne Cortez wrote the poem, "Talking About New Orleans." She laments the destruction that the city suffered and condemns the human greed and cruelty that allowed continued destruction. A line states, "...move to higher ground because a hurricane will not rearrange its creativity for you..." The storm's creativity and the world's response has resulted in a city that has been rearranged. With hundreds of thousands displaced and eighty percent of the city underwater, New Orleans could never be what it once was. Even after being rebuilt, demographic trends reveal a city undergoing rapid gentrification. This site is a glimpse into the rapid and ongoing removal of African-Americans from a historically diverse city.
