about this item

This volume brings together 10 chapters by sociologists and other scholars from the US, who examine issues facing the poor and people of color in urban, suburban, and rural areas and small towns in the post-Katrina era. They consider racial and ethnic differences in the types and levels of assets owned by blacks and whites in the South; the effects of Hurricane Katrina on social inequality in New Orleans; the school-to-prison pipeline of Louisiana; the practices and perceptions of educators about black male youth; responses to three Louisiana floods (Hurricane Katrina, the Mississippi Flood of 1927, and Hurricane Betsy of 1965) and whether they reflect genocide; the policing strategy of call-ins hosted by law-enforcement and human-service organizations; the effects of Hurricane Katrina on black women; the divesting, dismantling, and devaluing of black bodies in the US; the importance of building literacy for learning tolerance through literature; and how the militarization, occupation, and segregation revealed from Hurricane Katrina still exists.
