THE INVISIBLE COAST:
MISSISSIPPI'S STRUGGLE IN THE WAKE OF HURRICANE KATRINA

A DOCUMENTARY CREATED BY STUDENTS
AT DARTMOUTH COLLEGE

 

THE TERM "INVISIBLE COAST" WAS COINED IN THIS ARTICLE, WHICH YOU SHOULD READ, IN THE BILOXI SUN HERALD (CLICK)

 

Following Hurricane Katrina, student volunteers from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire traveled to the
Mississippi Gulf Coast to join in the relief efforts.This documentary pulls from the two trips and was
released in May 2006.
During two trips over winter and spring vacations, we were shocked by
the on-going devastation. More appalling, however,was how little of Mississippi's story had been told in the rest
of the country. Many residents of the coast whom we spoke with begged us to tell people about how difficult
their lives have been since Katrina hit. The hurricane destroyed lives in a matter of minutes.
It will take years to rebuild.
