Dumping in Dixie by Robert D. Bullard
Book DescriptionTo be poor, working-class, or a person of color in the United States often means bearing a disproportionate share of the countrys environmental problems. Starting with the premise that all Americans have a basic right to live in a healthy environment, Dumping in Dixie chronicles the efforts of five African American communities, empowered by the civil rights movement, to link environmentalism with issues of social justice. In the third edition, Bullard speaks to us from the front lines of the environmental justice movement about new developments in environmental racism, different organizing strategies, and success stories in the struggle for environmental equity.
