Been In the Storm Too Long
As the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches, Tavis Smiley Reports visits New Orleans, capturing the mood and spirit of the city’s courageous residents five years after the levees failed in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. For the program, Tavis reunites with Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme, who has spent the past five years chronicling the people of New Orleans as they struggle to recover and rebuild their city. Tavis now returns to speak with some of the city’s most resilient residents who share their rich cultural heritage as they rebuild schools, churches and homes against enormous odds.
