After Hurricane Katrina, like so many people I could not believe what I was watching on TV and because I grew up spending vacations on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I wondered what type of damage the disaster left on the Gulf of Mexico. That was in 2005 and when and why my book project on Hurricane Katrina Mississippi Black Women commenced. Wow, that was 15 years ago. After interviewing one of the women, it became clear to me when she said, “no one knows what happen to us in Mississippi,” that I had to write the women’s stories. I am thrilled that the women’s experiences will become an official part of the Hurricane Katrina narrative very soon.
