From The Frontline: Superintendent Shaun Ferguson
Hurricane Katrina. Black Lives Matter. COVID-19. These are only a few of the crises that Shaun Ferguson has witnessed during his time in the New Orleans Police Department. In this edition of Nola Life Stories, a series of first person oral histories, Superintendent Ferguson reflects on his work as the city social distances and grapples with systemic racism. This interview comes from the Historic New Orleans Collection’s new project, From The Frontline: Narratives of the COVID-19 Pandemic in New Orleans.
