Notes

Abstract: This thesis argues that top-down political processes enabled Katrina�s destruction, including the sustained displacement and systematic disenfranchisement of Black working-class residents during the rebuilding process. �This paper looks at post-Katrina urbicidal trends (and residential resistance to them) through a method of open-ended, grounded-theory interviews with founders, directors and workers in the grassroots, community-based organization network of New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward. �The project integrates secondary literature and with participation and observation to create a narrative of urbicide and urbicide resistance in post-Katrina New Orleans. �It contends that the two most salient features of this story are a local history of resistance and a local culture of mutual aid.
