NEW BOOK ADDRESSES MODERN-DAY SEGREGATION IN AMERICA

City/State/Country/Date:  El Paso, TX, USA;  May 15, 2014

Body: How Do Hurricane Katrina’s Winds Blow? Racism in 21st Century New Orleans,by Liza Lugo, JD, was released worldwide by ABC-CLIO Praeger Publishing on March 31, 2014. The nationwide book tour kicks off May 17th in El Paso.

How Do Hurricane Katrina’s Winds Blow? is the second book in Praeger Publishing’s new series Racism in American Institutions, a series that, according to series editor, Brian D. Behnken, “examines the ways in which racism has become, and remains, a part of the fabric of many American institutions.” Lugo explains, “Katrina would prove to be more than a natural disaster; it would expose a national disaster. The storm exposed the effects of centuries of racial hatred and dehumanization; and along with the storm surge, it brought with it more segregationist policy. This is the story of the struggle to be treated with human dignity and the opportunities we have to heal.”

According to Antonio R. Flores, President and CEO, Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, this book is: “…an eye-opening examination of the galvanization of forces across decades that targeted a specific segment of the American populace, ending in the tragic fragmentation of individuals, families, and communities from the American way of life that is espoused to cherish life, liberty, and equality.”

How Do Hurricane Katrina’s Winds Blow? Racism in 21st Century New Orleans is available now through all major booksellers. Ms. Lugo received her juris doctor from the University of Florida Levin College of Law and holds a bachelor’s degree in government and world affairs from the University of Tampa where she graduated magna cum laude. Book tour stops include El Paso, TX; New Orleans, LA; Huntington, NY; and the Tampa Bay, FL area. Additional locations are being added to the tour.

Body:  How Do Hurricane Katrina’s Winds Blow? Racism in 21st Century New Orleans, Liza Lugo, J.D., was released worldwide by ABC-CLIO Praeger Publishing on March 31, 2014. Ms. Lugo will appear at Barnes & Noble at the Fountains of Farah in El Paso, TX on May 17, 2014, as part of her nationwide book tour.

How Do Hurricane Katrina’s Winds Blow? is the second book in Praeger Publishing’s new series Racism in American Institutions, a series that, according to series editor, Brian D. Behnken, “examines the ways in which racism has become, and remains, a part of the fabric of many American institutions.” Lugo explains in the book: “What we are now witnessing in the 21st century is the fracture or complete breakdown of families, societies, and governments as a result of centuries of dehumanization that have taken a toll. More natural disasters (tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, etc.) merely uncover the reality of the national disasters we have created by granting sanctuary to dehumanization via the law.” That dehumanization disproportionately affected racial and gender minorities.

A documentary of the “historical[ly] discriminatory treatment of African Americans in the United States, Louisiana, and New Orleans, [it] presents a foundation for understanding how an act of natural disaster could be elevated to a catastrophic event because of the disparities inherent in the legal and social systems,” says Dr. Glen L. Starks of Northeastern University.

How Do Hurricane Katrina’s Winds Blow? is the second book in Praeger Publishing’s new series Racism in American Institutions, a series that, according to editor, Brian D. Behnken, “examines the ways in which racism has become, and remains, a part of the fabric of many American institutions.”  Behnken states in the forward of the book that it provides “an authoritatively legalistic perspective” and “a social, legal, and historical study of not just New Orleans, not just Katrina, but of the African-American lived perspective throughout U.S. history.”

Dr. Antonio Flores, President and CEO of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, in his review, stated, “Lugo demonstrates the power of law to reinforce the process of dehumanization, but equally the need for law to restrain it.”
