Josef Brown

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents an interview with Katrina survivor Josef Brown, who was fifteen years old when survivor interviewer Phylicia Bradley recorded his story on April 1, 2007. Josef was one of the youngest storytellers in the Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston project. He was fourteen at the time of the hurricane. Josef was forced to become an adult overnight. He helped his brother break into an unoccupied house to save his family from drowning. In Houston, after the storm, as Josef’s mother became depressed over being unemployed, he acted as her caretaker.
