Capture the Spirit

Where are these children now? That was the first thing that hit me as Iwalked from hall to hall and saw school works still hanging on the walls.  Hurricane Katrina flooded this predominantly black school in Milneburg, New Orleans and as I drove around, three years after, it was obvious that this neighborhood was hit hard by the exodus. The 2000 census had counted 5640 residents, but one year after the Hurricane, in 2006, non official observations had estimated at no more that 200. New Orleans defeated pessimistic predictions and today it is a vibrant, growing city thanks to the insurance and federal money that finally started to pour into the renovation. Milneburg is no exception and population is estimated to be about 80% of it's pre-Katrina levels. The school is still closed, however, and the fate of the building is uncertain. Demolition is the most likely outcome, according to some residents. On September 29, 2005 these children lost their school. They lost their place. If you look closely you can see the water line marking how high the flood waters reached.
