Alternative Spring Break
Cleaning up New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina
In 2006 instead of partying I decided to participate in VCU’s Alternative Spring Break program. A group of about 20 of us from Richmond spent one week in New Orleans helping a volunteer group that stepped in to help clean up the Ninth Ward after it was ravished by Hurricane Katrina. I brought my mini DV camcorder with me and attempted to capture the experience.
