- Program Description
In the wake of hurricane Katrina, as Americans begin a dialogue about the future of one of the nation's most distinctive and star-crossed cities, AMERICAN EXPERIENCE presents "New Orleans," a provocative history of the city that lies at the mouth of the mighty Mississippi and at the heart of the American experiment. Walled in on almost all sides by water, pressed together by the demands and dangers of geography, the crowded streets of New Orleans have always been a laboratory where the social forces that characterize American life play out in dramatic and, at times, disastrous fashion. The latest installment in our collection exploring America's great cities, which includes award-winning profiles of New York, Chicago, and Las Vegas, "New Orleans" offers a portrait that examines the city's unique and distinctive culture and illuminates its central place on the American landscape.
