- Program Description
This is a series of four quarterly specials designed to confront our individual and collective feelings of powerlessness in the face of a continuing environmental crisis. Hosted by Ira Flatow (writer/host of the PBS program "Square One TV.") #103/"Toxic Racism" Many experts believe poor and minority neighborhoods have been subjected to high levels of toxic waste dumping and industrial pollution because residents aren't expected to fight back. This program looks at how alliances are being forged between diverse groups working together to craft legal, political and educational strategies for eliminating environmental problems. Dr. Benjamin F. Chavis, Jr., exec. dir. of the NAACP, is featured, along with stories of community activism in Texas, California and North Carolina.
