Just in time for Mardi Gras, here's a different take on New Orleans

A former colleague of mine from CBS, Richard Barber, is working on a documentary about the high school Mardi Gras bands of New Orleans — and yesterday he sent me this new preview of the film, “The Whole Gritty City.” It looks amazing.

Check out the clip below.  And  visit the website for more information about how you can support this work and help it get seen.

And Happy Mardi Gras!
