Storms of Controversy: A Public Conversation about Katrina Aftermath

On Sunday, September 25, Mount Holyoke College’s Weissman Center for Leadership and the Liberal Arts will host “Storms of Controversy: Hurricane Katrina, Broken Levees, and Lives Undone,” a public conversation about disasters, class, race, and politics in and beyond the Gulf States. This event will take place at 2 pm in Hooker Auditorium in Clapp Laboratory. Speakers will include Lynda Morgan, associate professor of history; Preston Smith, associate professor of politics and associate director of the Weissman Center for Community-Based Learning; Margaret Kimberly, journalist and “Freedom Rider” columnist; and Benigno Aguirre, from the Disaster Research Center and University of Delaware’s sociology department. The event is part of the Weissman Center’s Law and Dis/Order series, inspired by the ways in which law, order, and disorder continue to shape our understanding of contemporary events and political efforts at home and abroad. This and all of the related events are free and open to the public.
