In the harrowing race for rescue during Hurricane Katrina, at least eleven African Americans were shot by whites in Algiers Point, a neighborhood that lies between the inundated Lower Ninth Ward and a National Guard rescue point. A hidden race war opened up in New Orleans during those days. Joining us to talk about his newly released investigation into the matter is A.C. Thompson. He's an award-winning journalist on staff at ProPublica, a non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest. His work was supported by The Investigative Fund at The Nation Institute and published in the latest edition of The Nation.
