In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.

African American & African Studies

In this challenging and diverse academic environment, we offer an exciting and significantly relevant range of areas of concentration, courses, and ideas. Within a single academic department our students study the rich social, political, economic, and cultural complexities of Africa, African America, and the broader African Diaspora.

The Black Student Union (BSU) was founded on January 14, 1969 as a means for Black students to come together. The BSU provides an intellectual, cultural and social environment for students and community members. BSU exists to encourage a positive image of Black people and support the educational goals of its members.
