Out of New Orleans: Race, Class, and Researching the Katrina Diaspora
Morris, Jerome E.
Urban Education, v43 n4 p463-487 2008
The torrential rains from Hurricane Katrina, the breaking of the levees, and the subsequent flooding of New Orleans resulted in another Black Diaspora. This article focuses on Black children and families who were displaced by Hurricane Katrina but now reside in cities, towns, and suburbs outside of the Crescent City. Informed by the author's ongoing investigation in a predominantly Black suburb in the U.S. South, this article puts forth the need for the scholarly community to develop more robust conceptual frameworks that interrogate the interconnectedness of race, social class, and place in researching and understanding the Katrina Diaspora. (Contains 2 figures and 11 notes.)
