It has been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and disproportionately affected its poor and black residents. At the time, Americans told ourselves never again. But in light of the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Sandra Bland and in the wake of the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, Center for American Progress Senior Fellow Sam Fulwood asks what have we learned since those dark days in Louisiana a decade ago.
