In September 2007, through a generous collaboration between The Rockefeller Foundation, Teachers College, and HBO, 30,000 copies of a new curriculum package addressing the issues of citizenship, race, class and poverty raised in the aftermath of Katrina were distributed to school, college and community educators. The package included a copy of Spike Lee and HBO's epic documentary, 'When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts,' as well as the highly acclaimed multidisciplinary curriculum guide, Teaching The Levees.
