Hurricane Katrina left more than 1,800 people dead
Two years ago, Hurricane Katrina slammed into New Orleans leaving more than 1,800 people dead.

The storm's path of devastation is still visible today as residents struggle to rebuild their lives.

Many say the much-promised aid has yet to arrive and that they have been left to fend for themselves.

We look at the legacy of Katrina and the role of politics and racism in that city's recovery.

For that discussion we are joined by Malik Rahim, director of 'Common Ground' a non-profit organization that focuses on rebuilding communities impacted by Katrina.

Born and raised in Louisiana, Malik remained in the city throughout the disaster. 

Angela McGlowan, a Republican strategist and political analyst also joins the show. 

She is the author of 'Bamboozled: How Americans are Being Exploited by the Lies of the Liberal Agenda.'
