On Tavis Smiley: "Right to Return: New Home Movies from the Lower 9th Ward"

Just saw an episode. Good, powerful & moving stuff about the hurrican Katrina disaster's aftermath. Show runs until June 1. Here is a description of the show from this PBS page:

"Beginning in January 2006, Oscar-winning filmmaker Jonathan Demme filmed in and around New Orleans, chronicling the lives of dozens of people—each of whom has their own unique story. The result is a documentary on the pioneering individuals and families who have chosen to exercise their self-granted “right to return” to their devastated homes and rebuild their lives following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Tavis accompanied Demme to New Orleans to visit with some of these courageous people who are central to the culture of the Big Easy."
