On Sale: August 15, 2010
Add to Wish List
Some of the first images you saw of New Orleans under water
during Hurricane Katrina were the mangled houses and cars,
and drowned bodies of the people from the Lower 9th Ward.
Before Hurricane Katrina, few had even heard of this
close-knit predominately African American community nestled
just five miles form world-famous Bourbon Street. The author
says, "I watched it all unfold on TV from my home near
Dallas that morning. As the waters rose, my heart sank."
This was my home, my neighborhood, my people. How could I
not use my gifts to tell their story? "Untold" lets you: â€¢
Peek into the lives of 16 residents, share their memories,
see how they survived, and where they are now â€¢ Find out
what the area was before it became the Lower 9th Ward â€¢ How
the Lower 9 may be connected to an area movie producer *The
Lower 9 remains devastated-still----but is struggling to
survive. Proceeds from this book will be donated to
organizations helping the residents of the Lower 9 recover.
