Carlos Martinez Research Material


History Department, UNO

University of New Orleans MA graduate student in history Carlos Martinez dedicated a great deal of time in 2006 to recording the effects of Katrina and its aftermath on individuals living in suburban New Orleans (Jefferson Parish). This collection begins with the experiences of Carlos and his family. Following those stories are excerpts of many interviews conducted by Carlos Martinez as well as summarized accounts of other people\'s experiences. These personal accounts provide insight into how Jefferson Parish residents--especially members of the New Orleans area Latin American community--fared following the storm.\r\n
