Trouble the water by Carl Deal ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This documentary takes the viewer inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never seen on screen.

It is not only about the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina, but about the underlying issues that remained when the flood waters receded -- failing public schools, record high levels of incarceration, poverty, structural racism and lack of government accountability
