New Orleans tourism officials launch a new campaign to attract visitors.
The New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation has unveiled its latest campaign to attract visitors to the city. Recent national news attention of the Mother’s Day shooting makes the job that much harder.
Among those hit by bullets in Sunday's shootings at the Mother's Day second line was journalist Deb Cotton.
She writes for The Gambit, and covers the city's street culture. She remains alive, reportedly in stable condition, but badly injured by the incident. New Orleans author and journalist Jed Horne has worked with Cotton. He writes in The Lens this week about her perspectives on violence in the city.
