The Lower 9th Ward houses of Pitt’s nonprofit Make it Right Foundation – individualistic and energy-efficient – are among the most inspired responses to the storm’s ravages. As the fifth anniversary of Katrina approached, Pitt spoke with historian Douglas Brinkley, his longtime friend, about his love of the city and his dreams for its future.

Thank you. I really admire his dedication to this project. He will also be on the NBC news of Friday night as well as Meet the Press on Sunday morning. It is so great to see him get the credit he so deserves.
