Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 22, 2006
On the eve of the one-year anniversary of what is the worst natural disaster in U.S. history, the provocative new documentary The Unmasking of New Orleans, produced by Final Call Incorporated (FCI) Broadcasting was released.
The ongoing struggle of the survivors of Hurricane Katrina is being swept away from the minds of the public as swiftly as the floodwaters washed away properties and lives when the levees breached. Is there truth to the numerous reports of rapes and murders? Who is going to tell the story of the heroic acts of the young men and women portrayed as senseless looters by the mainstream media? It is important to obtain the truth.
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan commissioned a crew from The Final Call newspaper to travel to New Orleans and film this documentary about the conditions and concerns that our people face since Hurricane Katrina, which the world must not be allowed to ignore, as we near the one-year anniversary of what is the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.
Included in the documentary are insightful perspectives from New Orleans Councilman Oliver Thomas, Author Michael Eric Dyson, community activist ‘Mama D’ as well as the nameless and faceless residents whose stories have not been told in this way before.
Bonus footage includes a visual tour of the Lower Ninth Ward featuring a conversation between Minister Farrakhan and New Orleans residents.

Interviews and perspectives are available upon request.
