On August 29, 8 PM to 10 PM on WKZE in Red Hook, NY, I’ll be hosting a two hour program marking two years since the Great Levee Failure (don’t call in Katrina) in New Orleans.
Music, readings from books on the subject, and talk about what New Orleans endured, how it’s coming back, and how people can help.
You’ll be able to hear program live on the Internet. More details as I get them.
A recap of Food Music Justice Projects since we started in December of 2006:
1. FoodMusicJustice.com online magazine – news and culture from the Big Easy (over 100 articles so far)
2. Sharpening the web campaign for Levees.org and helping them put video on their web site which has resulted in an explosion of new members – and enhanced political clout.
3. Technical assistance to CHAT, the Citizens Road Home Task Force, which is working to make sure citizens of Louisiana get the money they were promised to rebuild their homes.
4. The “Two Rivers, One Heart” Tour. We brought Jason Slack and the Slick Slack Brass Band to Manhattan, Brooklyn, the South Bronx, and Hudson, New York to spread the word that New Orleans is alive and well and still needs our help and attention.
