Deaf Government Area: Touring the Lower 9th Ward, New Orleans

\r\n\r\nThe tour moves a couple of blocks to visit Greta\'s family church: Amozian Baptist Church. Greta describes her family\'s multi-generational connection to Amozian, and she also briefly sketches Amozian\'s role in the community. Greta also discusses her personal role in one of the first joyous ceremonies to be held in the Lower Ninth Ward following Katrina. Greta\'s June 2006 wedding was both a celebration for family and friends and a public statement that her neighborhood and the community would return.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n(To view the video, double click the above link, or download it by right clicking on a PC or control click on a Mac to open with a media player of your choice that can view MP4 files.)
