Meet Burnell Cotlon. It’s been 12 years since Hurricane Katrina, and most people have given up on New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward. Not Burnell. He thought the neighborhood was worth saving. Somebody had to do something. And that somebody was him.
His story is the third in our series, presented in association with Tribeca Studios. Stories about people who were told they couldn't. People who challenged the status quo—and prevailed. People who Unbelieved.
