We took a step back into 2006 to listen to my conversation with scholar, best-selling author, and radio host Michael Eric Dyson. We discussed his book published that year called Come Hell or High Water: Hurricane Katrina and the Color of Disaster, which tells the story of those who were left behind during relief efforts.

Dyson explains how Katrina wasn’t just an engineering catastrophe, but also exposed the complexities that still exist within race and class relations in America. These issues continue to rear their head in American politics and society, and looking back to previous failures can be a way to find better methods for the future. Michael Eric Dyson is University Professor of Sociology at Georgetown University.
