Since Hurricane Katrina, the onslaught of heroine into St. Bernard Parish has increased to nearly epidemic proportions. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that in 2009, the drug induced death rate in Louisiana was higher than the national average. For the 2004 - 2008 time period, St. Bernard Parish in Louisiana had the 5th highest rate of drug poisoning deaths in the country, at 48 deaths per 100,000 population.
Our guest, Bonnie Kaye, lost her daughter to heroine. Bonnie’s grieving began years before her daughter Jennifer stuck a needle in her arm for one last high.
“My daughter was dying for a long period of time,” Kaye, an Oxford Circle resident, said recently. “You are dying for a long time before the actual death comes.”
Kaye shares the heartbreaking story of her daughter’s overdose death in 2002 with her new book Jennifer Needle in Her Arm: Healing from the Hell of My Daughter’s Addiction.
Writing is familiar territory for Kaye, a relationship counselor and author of eight books who also operates the Northeast GED Center, in Philadelphia. But that experience, as well as the passage of 12 years, didn’t make her latest book any easier to write.
Please join us for a compelling and emotional look at an American tragedy.
In the echo of Hurricane Katrina, World Footprints will explore a sample of the multiple treasures that can be found in New Orleans. We will share a wonderful conversation with Chef Leah Chase of Dokie Chase restaurant fame. Chef Leah is an iconic figure in New Orleans. She was the inspiration behind Tiana, the principle character in the Disney Animated Picture Princess and the Frog. Then World Footprints will take listeners through two little known musuems, the Free People of Color museum and the African-American museum. Other stops on this audio trip include a tour through Treme and a visit to the famed Carosel bar in the Hotel Monteleone. New Orleans is a treasure trove of wonderful museums, rich history and cultural gumbo and today’s show will explore just a few of the treasure today.

Join us August 29, 2014 for our special Hurricane Katrina 9th Anniversary show ...
Hurricane Katrina ... was the costliest hurricane, as well as one of the five deadliest, in the history of the United States. Among recorded Atlantic hurricanes, it was the sixth strongest overall.
Katrina was the costliest storm in United States history - with amounts over $81.2 billion. The death toll was over 1,836.
I just so happened to be named "Katrina" and this was my personal site ... little did I know that over 15 billion hits within one day of Hurricane Katrina hitting the coast would come here ... to learn ... to read ... to find help ... to offer help ... and that this website would be used as such to be a blessing to thousands of people all over the globe. We still get over 60,000 hits per day ... 9 years later!
8:00 pm right here!
Keith and Naomi discuss Hurricane Katrina and the politics of exploitation on the 10th anniversary of the natural disaster. They cover the intersection of disaster capitalism and racial politics, and how it relates both to the events in 2005 and what is still happening today.
Keith and Naomi Hosted by sociologist Keith Brekhus from Montana along with Liberal Fix Producer Naomi Minogue. Every week the two of them feature a special guest and/or tackle tough issues with a perspective that comes from outside the beltway.

This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
We continue with our Katrina Update, this time we look at Mississippi in the second hour.
We open with a conversation with Harriette Davis, RN, Organizer, All of Us or None, a Program of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, prisonerswithchildren.org
Secondly, we speak to Antoine Hunter, choreographer, director, Urban Jazz Dance Company, about the 3rd Annual Bay Area Deaf Dance Festival, August 28-30, 2015 at ODC Theatre, 3153 17th Street, San Francisco, (415) 863-9834.
Hurricane Katrina displaced thousands of school aged children. On this week's show, we will hear from Christopher Martin, a hurricane Katrina evacuee. His New Orleans education was abruptly interrupted and was forced to complete it in Atlanta. Chris is a success story that you need to hear.
