    PBS NewsHour [#11343] MIGRANTS - As the refugee crisis in Eastern Europe continues, desperate migrants are fleeing war-torn areas to make their way to Europe. Hundreds are feared dead just off the coast of Libya, and the death toll of the victims found dead in the back of an abandoned truck in Austria has risen to more than 70. Lindsey Hilsum of Independent Television News reports.
    GEORGE W. BUSH IN NEW ORLEANS - Ten years ago, President George W. Bush was criticized for his response to the storm. Today, President Bush returned to New Orleans where he spoke positively of the city's recovery, but also said that the country would never forget the devastation the storm caused. Judy Woodruff reports.
    KATRINA 10 YEARS LATER, SCHOOLS - Just before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, the area's public schools were headed for rock bottom. After the storm, schools were so devastated that they were forced to start over. Now, charter schools in New Orleans have raised test scores and graduation rates. But some are saying that the success comes from bending the rules. Special correspondent John Tulenko of Education Week reports.
    SEXUAL CONSENT - Nineteen-year-old Owen Labrie, a former student at a prep school in New Hampshire, was accused of raping a freshman girl in 2014. Today, a jury cleared him of felony rape, convicting him on other sex charges. Jeffrey Brown discusses the case and the issue of sexual assault in high school with Deborah Tuerkheimer, a professor of law at Northwestern University and Emily Bazelon, who writes about women's issues and law for The New York Times Magazine.
    SHIELDS AND BROOKS - Syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks join Judy Woodruff to discuss the week's news, including whether Vice President Joe Biden will join the 2016 presidential race, perceptions of Hillary Clinton's trustworthiness, Bernie Sanders' prospects and the shooting of two journalists on live television.
    KATRINA 10 YEARS LATER, MT. NEBO - Mt. Nebo Church was a popular place of worship before Katrina hit. After the storm, membership dwindled. Now, in their own words, parishioners explain how the church has recovered, and what that recovery means to them.

    My Louisiana Love This program journeys with filmmaker Monique Verdin on a quest to connect with her ancestral roots within the Houma Nation, a Native American community reeling from decades of environmental degradation and natural disasters.
    The Houma, one of the largest Native American tribes in North America, live in South Louisiana communities where decaying marshlands serve as the only buffer against storm-surge floodwaters. Verdin sees her people's traditional way of life - and the land they live on - threatened by a cycle of man-made environmental crises. After witnessing the devastation caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, and the BP oil spill in 2010, Verdin finds herself turning to environmental activism, and documenting her family's struggle to stay close to the land despite the cycle of disasters and the rapidly disappearing coastline.
    This film looks at the complex and uneven relationship between the oil and gas industry and the indigenous people of the Mississippi Delta. In this intimate portrait, Verdin must overcome the loss of her house, her father and her partner - and redefine the meaning of "home."

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1852] *Environmental Justice in Mossville - A new chemical plant is being built in the small African-American town of Mossville in southwest Louisiana, raising significant concerns about health, safety, and environmental impact. The plant's owner has offered to pay Mossville residents to move out of their homes and sell their churches. The company says it is being generous, but some longtime residents and religious leaders feel they are being forced out. A?The church is the hub of the community, as far as relationships and as far as love and caring for one another,A? says LaSalle Clarence Williams Sr., chairman of the deacon board at Mount Zion Baptist Church, MossvilleA's oldest house of worship.
    *Payday Lenders - Store-front lenders promising easy money are a familiar sight in poorer neighborhoods, and nationwide, about 12 million Americans spend more than $7 billion on payday loans each year. Payday loans offer quick access to cash when banks or credit unions can't help, and the very poor who need the money often find they have no other recourse. But critics say the practice is predatory and forces debt on those who are least able to afford it. Now churches have started programs to help the poor escape their debt. Correspondent Lucky Severson reports from Birmingham, Alabama on lenders who target and trap the most vulnerable.
    *Terence Blanchard on "This Time We're Living In" - Ten years after Hurricane Katrina, we talk with renowned jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard, a Buddhist, about music, meditation, and the A?collective vibration of soulsA? that speaks whenever music brings us together.

    Hubert H. Humphrey: The Art of the Possible Many Americans remember former Vice President Hubert Humphrey (1911-1978) as a cheerleader for the Vietnam War - shunned by his own party and mistrusted by a generation of young people. Others considered him a great progressive, a guiding light for the post-New Deal liberal movement that forged The New Frontier and The Great Society, and a champion of civil rights. This program takes a fresh look at the great body of work of this remarkable American. Ten years in the making, the film uses Humphrey's own words and interviews with President Jimmy Carter, Vice President Walter Mondale, Bill Moyers, Tom Hayden and others, to explore his journey through the major events of the 20th century. duration 1:56:24   STEREO TVG

Later, NewsHour Weekend profiles Leah Chase, the chef and co-owner of the legendary New Orleans Creole eatery, Dooky Chase. After decades of running the restaurant, which had become a landmark in the city's oldest black neighborhood, Chase saw her business, home and virtually everything she owned wash away.
