Glenda Jones Stevenson Harris

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents the story of Katrina survivor Glenda Jones Stevenson Harris. As a longtime resident of Lower Ninth Ward, Glenda witnessed the decline of her neighborhood in the face of drugs, crime, and poverty. She dedicated herself to reversing that decline: one year before Katrina’s landfall, she became the ward’s first advocacy director. Among Glenda’s many self-assigned tasks was to study and strategize how to evacuate the Lower Nine in case of a hurricane. Glenda was also a member of the first training session mounted by the Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston project.
