Freedom Hill | Environmental Racism

Season 16 Episode 4 | 53s

In cities and town across America, communities of color and people living in poorer neighborhoods have been the target of environmental racism. The unfair decisions and practices by local, state and federal governments, companies and organizations undermine the health and well-being of people as in the case of the historic Black town of Princeville, North Carolina.
