Take a step back in time at the B. W. Cooper Housing Projects with Malik Rahim cofounder of the Common Ground Collective hurricane relief organization and former Black Panther. Malik speaks of the history of the Black Panther Party and the cultural significance of the Projects.

B.W. Cooper Projects are slated for destruction while much of the city's returned citizens are sleeping in cars or tents .. or in outlying areas. Thousands of people could be living there right now yet the city will not allow them to reopen.

Watching the video, I kept wanting to ask Malik, "Aren't the 2nd and 3rd floors okay? Why not use those buildings for temporary housing, and hire back all the displaced to come do the rebuilding.

It seems so obvious, put all those people to work!
