From Relish: “The idea originated with Deborah Randolph, a friend and fan of McKee’s who also happens to be the curator of education for SECCA. She and her husband were displaced by Katrina and, ultimately, ended up moving to Winston-Salem. “It’s a thank-you to the people in North Carolina for taking care of us and others, and all the people who moved here,” Randolph said. “And all the people in North Carolina who went down to New Orleans and helped the city. “I wanted to commemorate the 10th anniversary, not for what happened, but actually for the renaissance and revival and resurgence, and to thank everybody.”
