When Environmental Justice Meets Human Rights

  • Aired: 04/22/2014
  • 01:56
  • Rating: TV-14
The environmental justice movement came from communities that historically bore the brunt of hosting waste sites in their backyards. When a predominantly black county in North Carolina protested a toxic waste landfill, it galvanized the nation to talk about environmental racism. This video with archival footage is an excerpt from American Masters: A Fierce Green Fire, airing April 22, 2014.
