"To call it a natural disaster is to avoid all of the manmade elements of it. The ways in which racial injustice allowed for environmental injustice, allowed for sort of policies to be made because we saw poor people and southern people and black people as less valuable to the nation, and therefore made a whole set of development choices that had these enormous environmental consequences." -Melissa Harris-Lacewell

This week on Bill Moyers Journal (KCET)

As the second anniversary of Hurricane Katrina approaches, Bill Moyers gets two views on what the disaster and its aftermath says about American culture and values with Princeton University's Melissa Harris-Lacewell and author and environmental activist Mike Tidwell.

One of the country’s leading historians, Martin E. Marty, who has spent a lifetime unraveling the mysteries of the world’s religions, discusses his latest book on the mystery of childhood and what adults can learn from it.

Bill Moyers bids farewell to Karl Rove.

As a country, what have we learned from Katrina, and what messages do we need to send to Katrina's victims? Tell us what you think.

Discuss the lessons we can take from children and the values of childhood.

Preview and respond to Bill Moyers essay on Karl Rove.
