"The storm was not what nearly destroyed New Orleans. Poverty, racism, neglected levees, and his disastrous response was what nearly destroyed America’s most distinctive city.  While I suspect the levees have been repaired and response times have improved, poverty and racism are still very real features of life in New Orleans and America." -- +Lawrence Ware

"Straight Outta Compton really spins such a good looking, up-from-the-hood confirmation of the masculine bravado we associate with N.W.A and the music, that it invites us to be satisfied with the thrilling highlights, ignore and not interrogate the not so small blanks and unexplored territory in the biopic." -- +Stephane Dunn

"The ‘racial strife’ and tension the news media spotlights has not led to widespread support of new faculty to foster these necessary racial conversations; no financial investment in departments committed to developing curriculum to prepare the next generation of students to be racially literate. In a moment where the needs couldn’t be clearer, colleges and universities have prioritized recreation facilities, athletics, bloated administrative costs, and professional programs." -- +David J Leonard

'Wendell Pierce is perhaps best known for his acting roles on The Wire and Treme. Lately, he’s taken on a different kind of role, as community rebuilder. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Pierce invested time, money and art into to bringing back the neighborhood where he grew up. Ten years later,  PBS NewsHour's Jeffrey Brown accompanies Pierce for a look at his home that has not only survived but thrived.'

'After writer and Tulane University professor Jesmyn Ward survived Hurricane Katrina while staying at her grandmother’s house, she wrote Salvage the Bones, an award-winning novel about a Mississippi family in the days leading up to the devastating storm. She joins Gwen Ifill to discuss how the storm affected the rural poor who could not escape, and now, who may not be able to return.' -- +PBS NewsHour

"As calls for newsroom diversity get louder, NPR's +Gene Demby  suggests, we might do well to consider that Black reporters covering race and policing literally have skin in the game."
