Program Overview

Linda Newcomb was forced from her home in New Orleans by hurricane Katrina.  She has recorded the experience in words, objects and images. She will share her art and experience with you.

"Last year, in hurricane winds and under a mambo moon, I, and well over half the population of New Orleans fled before Katrina hit our city. We thought we would be back in a few days, but we are still adrift. Unable to return, we have become a fleet of arks, each one preserving what we can. Scattered all over this country, we are keeping our home alive. Alive in our voices, our music, our stories, our art, alive in our hearts and now in yours. Hear our story, look at our pictures, remember us, and you too will keep our home alive.

laissez les bon temps roullette encore!"
