KATRINA COMMEMORATION: Resources to bring back the real New Orleans (COMMENTARY)

larm

There is so much that can be said, but it isn’t even necessary if you truly know what it is to ‘Miss New Orleans’. The city is being overtaken by people who know nothing of its culture. Hopefully, they will come to love and respect it like native New Orleanians, but if the past few months are anything like the future, that is not a realistic hope. Wake up, folks. Let’s do what we need to do to make certain the city’s real heritage is preserved. This is done through hard work and The Arts.
