In August 2005 New Orleans' various strata were laid bare when Hurricane Katrina lashed the city and levee breaks left residents scrambling for their lives. Visit the Katrina and Beyond Exhibit
and witness a disaster in the making, what caused it and what is being done to prevent a similar catastrophe. But even after her hardships, the town’s unofficial motto is Laissez les bons temps rouler (Let the good times roll).
The sonorous echoes of sweet jazz, funky brass, R&B and blues beat from unexpected corners, and dancing becomes a reaction, not a choice.
