Today August 30, the people of New Orleans continued the celebration of those lives taken so abruptly. Not just during the horror of the storm but in the aftermath, who were killed by the police and the national guard. Some of them so badly decomposed from burning, decapitation, and other terrible means that were witnessed by those who stayed. Some voluntarily and others forced to stay behind because of the lack of mobility due to illness, age, or medical conditions too dangerous to leave behind. Some the world witnessed being thrown into the Mississippi River by hospital staff. The only lives spared were those just left there to die in the storm. Under the orders of George Bush the former president the national guard and military brought in ten thousand body bags to fill, contemplating the total annihilation of the people. This is insane and George Bush needs to be charged with crimes against humanity for his gross neglect and giving such an order presumably left no room for optimism of survivors. But a miracle happened and the people who were blessed to survive, survived through the power of the people's love for one another. Black love saved The People of New Orleans.
That is what I experienced today as I said farewell to the city of my mothers birth, the Unconditional Love of Black People for one another. The compassion to help one another survive, UMBUTU, I AM BECAUSE YOU ARE.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885), the latter often called "The Great American Novel."
Twain grew up in Hannibal, Missouri, which provided the setting for Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer. After an apprenticeship with a printer, he worked as a typesetter and contributed articles to the newspaper of his older brother, Orion Clemens. He later became a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River before heading west to join Orion in Nevada. He referred humorously to his singular lack of success at mining, turning to journalism for the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise. In 1865, his humorous story, "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", was published, based on a story he heard at Angels Hotel in Angels Camp, California, where he had spent some time as a miner. The short story brought international attention, and translated into classic Greek. His wit and satire, in prose and in speech, earned praise from critics and peers, and he was a friend to presidents, artists, industrialists, and European royalty.
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
