Kristen Clarke works with the NAACP Legal Defense and Educations Fund, Inc., handling voting rights matters and legal problems resulting from the Hurricane Katrina Crisis.

Review:

"Seeking Higher Ground thoroughly examines every angle of the Hurricane Katrina disaster, and offers smart, damning critiques of how individual and societal prejudice turned a natural disaster into a man-made catastrophe. After more than two years, this book reminds us of all the work still left to be done." - Donna Brazile,

"This marvelous book is the most comprehensive and insightful examination of the most catastrophic event in recent American history." - Cornel West, Class of 1943 University Professor of African American Studies, Princeton University
