Abe Louise Young

After Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans native Abe Louise Young founded Alive in Truth, a project where caring Austin citizens listen to and record the stories of people displaced by the storm. Alive in Truth has been collecting these oral histories since September 4, 2005. In the StoryCorps booth Abe interviewed former New Orleans residents Joe Navis and Big Chief Kevin Goodman, who are now living in Austin and have participated in her project.
