Note "One powerful response to the disaster of Hurricane Katrina was the Peabody Award-winning HBO Documentary Films event, When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts, by Spike Lee. Now through the generosity of the Rockefeller Foundation, faculty and staff at Teachers College, Columbia University have taken the documentary and created a compelling curriculum guide that, along with the 2-DVD set of When the Levees Broke, is being made available for distribution free of charge to high schools, colleges, and community groups"--Container.
