Hosted by Jiarra Jackson, "Youth Radio's Generation Katrina: Youth Voices from New Orleans" talks at length with young people in New Orleans, a changed city since Hurricane Katrina.
Life today is dramatically different for many youth, compared to pre-Katrina times. One teen, for example, struggles with the trauma of living through the hurricane. A college student tries to plan a career in a city where there are many jobs, but limited professional opportunities. A young musician works to rebuild New Orleans' music culture beyond the tourist trade. These and other young people share their experience, as they work to reconcile a traumatic past with future dreams and present realities.
