For the city of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the summer of 2016 has ushered in a season of police brutality, retaliation, and ultimately, a thousand year flood that left over 20,000 people displaced in southern Louisiana. SUMMER16 explores the intersection of race and class and how the two have played a part in this chronicle of Baton Rouge history by following the accounts of people of color.
