Katrina destroyed a Black city, and New Orleans rebuilt a White city.

Katrina destroyed a Black city, and New Orleans rebuilt a White city.

Journalist Gary Rivlin explains how Hurricane Katrina exposed massive racial fault lines across New Orleans, and why the rebuilding process reinforced structural inequality - from loss of Black political power and public assets to a government response that ignored Black lives in favor of free market urban development.

Gary is author of the new book Katrina: After the Flood from Simon & Schuster.

Gary Rivlin is journalist, author and an investigative reporting fellow at The Nation Institute.
