Tip of the Hat to N'awlins 5 years Later

Katrina changed me forever...but I Am Still New Orleans...

I'm going to play this new song by Vince Vance laced with his haunting refrain (above) this weekend and hoist a few to my favorite city. Recruiting may not be synonymous with New Orleans but it's workforce challenges can be found in nearly every city and town in the US. I believe it is the canary in our society that we will someday be judged by- especially our willingness to support the community there ..or not.

The link was sent to me by Preston Edwards Sr who is CEO and the founder of the Black Collegian...nearly 40 years ago. Pres and his wife Rosa, are among my personal heroes. He was one of 3 I tracked down in the hours after Katrina then later that month met with in Birmingham, AL to capture his family's story and learn how small communities were helping evacuees find work....but that is another tale for another time.

Tip of the hat.
