The Lower 9th Ward

The Lower 9th Ward of New Orleans is one of the richest cultural communities in the country and was, until Hurricane Katrina in August, 2005, a crossroads of families, music and social interaction in New Orleans. As one community leader aptly described it recently, the Lower 9th Ward had an "atmosphere of engagement that featured time spent with one another in dialog, in celebration of the music, words and history that make the Lower 9th Ward so special."
