About the film:
Exploring Racial and Social Environmental Justice. Mossville, Louisiana: A once-thriving community founded by formerly enslaved and free people of color, and an economically flourishing safe haven for generations of African American families. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their toxic black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes, and those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos and injustice stands one man who refuses to abandon his family’s land – and his community.
This film is sponsored by the Office of Sustainability at Ohio University in support of Pollution Prevention Week, September 21-27.
