Environmental Racism: A Hidden Threat with Dr. Dorceta Taylor

We're making a deadly mistake if we don't talk about environmental justice when we discuss racism and Black liberation. The lasting impacts of toxic waste, pollution, climate change, and other harms continue to cause long-term health outcomes and take countless Black lives. So on this episode of Black History Year, we're talking about it. With the guidance of environmental sociologist Dr. Dorceta Taylor - who has contributed to the environmental movement for more than 30 years - we'll dig into the connection between racism, economic inequality, and the environment, and the actions we can take NOW to protect ourselves and our future. BHY is produced by PushBlack, the nation's largest non-profit Black media company - hit us up at BlackHistoryYear.com and share this with your people!
