“East of Tragedy”

I recently wrote an article about a New Orleans East couple that just appeared in this month’s New Orleans neighborhood publication The Trumpet (which is a product of the Neighborhoods Partnership Network, a post-K non-profit). Their story is compelling and their strength continuously refreshing. I saw my writing of their story as trying to put an oral story into words, therein capturing as much of the vernacular and dialogue as could advance the narrative and the feeling of how their lives have changed.

Hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me your feedback.
