Review of Fauborg Treme in ShortEnd Magazine

At ShortEnd Magazine check out the review of David Logsdon's documentary Fauborg Treme: The Untold Story of Black New Orleans. From the review, written by Tracy Jones:

"The dominating factor in this film to me, as an African-American, was how detached I felt in part because I had no idea how influential and important New Orleans was to America. "New Orleans is not so much overlooked as put into a separate category," Elie explains. "All Americans are aware of the city and have a vague knowledge of the music and celebrations here, but they don't connect that to the mainstream of American history and culture." When Katrina struck New Orleans, the media appeared to have a moment of honesty and determination to passionately report on this tragic event through a perceived objectivity. They managed to expose the incompetence of the federal government, but in all their human interests stories, from MSNBC to CNN, they somehow missed revealing the vast, ingenious history that is told in Faubourg Treme."
