This is our annual tribute to the resiliency of black people, who continue to rise despite both natural and manmade obstacles. On the seventh anniversary of the Great Flood, another hurricane loams close to New Orleans. A category 1, it nonetheless has folks evacuating, those who can. Others are staying tight to "ride it out." We will speak to as many on the ground as we can, depending on the phone connections. Electricity is out in many places. Malik Rahim, Commonground co-founder, said from Algiers that the electricity was out, and they were using a generator. We will speak to Mwalimu, Robert King and Parnell Herbert. All are Katrina survivors. We will close the tribute with a conversation with Kimberly Rivers-Rogers who is one of the directors and subject in the film, Trouble the Waters, which was nominated for a Grammy: Best Documentary.
