Obit Gives Us an Inside Look at Inside Journalism. It's Not Pretty. - National Review

Monday, May 01, 2017

This film is part of Demme’s planned project to document the American issue of “right to return” — citizens of New Orleans’s Lower Ninth Ward who were denied the right to reclaim their flooded homes. Demme found a fertile subject in the charming, articulate, middle-aged Parker, who had survived an unsuccessful marriage, assorted career ventures, genuine tests of faith, and then Katrina. One friend tells Carolyn, ‘We are spiritual beings going through a human experience.’ That realization summarizes Demme’s art. Parker held fast to her cultural and spiritual heritage and her citizen’s rights, which makes this a far richer film than Spike Lee’s two (count ’em) overblown HBO documentaries about Katrina or any of Anderson Cooper’s countless, grandstanding CNN reports/arguments that exploited the disaster. Lee and Cooper both showered typical liberal condescension on less fortunate people, merely to show off their own bourgie political dogma. But Demme worked artistically t...

Lolis Elie, Lawyer Who Helped Desegregate New Orleans, Dies at 87 - New York Times

Saturday, April 08, 2017

Lolis Edward Elie, an undaunted civil rights pioneer whose advocacy as a lawyer, protest organizer and negotiator helped propel the racial desegregation of New Orleans, died on Tuesday at his home in the city’s Treme neighborhood. He was 87.The cause was apparently complications of Parkinson’s disease, said his son, Lolis Eric Elie, a journalist, food historian and filmmaker.A childhood victim of discrimination growing up in segregated Louisiana, Mr. Elie (pronounced E-lie) vowed that he would never return to the South after experiencing, at 17, relative racial anonymity in New York City, having gone north for a brief stint as a merchant seaman.But after he was drafted into the Army in 1951, a fellow soldier encouraged him to pursue a legal career once he was discharged. He did, returning home to continue his schooling.As a newly minted lawyer in the early 1960s, Mr. Elie found himself in the vanguard of a nascent movement to integrate downtown lunch counters and other public accommodations and to boycott stores in a black shopping district where blacks could get only menial jobs.“When we got to the civil rights movement, I would have to say...
