Five years after Hurricane Katrina, BET News examines what happened to the promises made, and the lives displaced by the devastation in New Orleans’ historic Ninth Ward neighborhood. In this 12-month investigation, BET News revisits the Ninth Ward and examines the reality of life there today as residents still struggle to rebuild their homes, schools, communities and their lives.

The powerful and dramatic stories of the Ninth Ward illuminate the redemptive quality of the human condition.
