Spike Lee’s Latest Katrina Epic Contains Great Insights into BP Oil Spill

This week marks the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina which ravaged New Orleans and much of the same gulf coast that has been damaged by the BP oil gusher.    With all the media coverage, no show will have the long-term impact as Spike Lee’s HBO documentary: ‘If God Is Willing and Da Creek Don’t Rise.’ I am glad to have HBO but realize many others do not.  I also want to focus this article on what the film covered about the BP Oil Disaster.  This article highlights key lessons from the film about with how corporate greed and governmental ineptitude led to the BP Oil disaster that continues to seriously threaten our communities and ecosystems.  This film will be important for urging us to action now; as well as a historical record for the future of bad luck and trouble in the Gulf.
