Finding Our Folk – 60min
The Finding Our Folk Tour, organized by high school and college students,
sought to use the tools of education, documentation, healing, and organizing to
explore and discuss the conditions that led to the devastating impact of Katrina;
to join the voices of resistance, the veterans of past and continuing movements,
with the voices of Hip-Hop, Blues and Jazz; to celebrate African and indigenous
cultures as they have been expressed in New Orleans and through out the world;
to reconnect the individuals, families and communities that were scattered across
the country, living in exile. The tour visited 8 cities, gathering 150 to 400 people,
a combination of displaced hurricane survivors and local community members.
Young people documented all aspects of the tour. This is their story.
