Chantell Jones

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents an interview with Katrina survivor Chantell Jones, who was nineteen years old when the hurricane hit. She spent four days at the Convention Center in the company of as many as 20,000 fellow survivors, making it through each day with little or no food. Despite witnessing horrors and criminal behavior, Chantell also personally witnessed far more acts of goodness than of violence or nihilism.
