Others on the panel will be:
- Casi Callaway, the executive director of Mobile Baykeeper;
- Amy Liu, a leading expert on the recovery of New Orleans through her work as senior fellow and deputy director of the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution; and
- Matthew Pitt, a writer who questions the success of a coastal art museum in post-Katrina Mississippi.
The day-long event will also feature talks by David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States, and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, and panels on the South’s land and environment, and culture and identity.
