Today, as they have for more than a century, New Orleans jazz funerals and Sunday second line parades absorb the pain of death and the legacy of racism, soaring to the transcendent joy of rebirth. A violent storm and a parade shooting plunge clarinetist Dr. Michael White and culture carrier Deb "Big Red" Cotton into a search for the city’s soul.
