ABOUT DOWN BY THE RIVER
The river parishes of Louisiana have long been polluted, from plantations to the petrochemical companies of today. Industry chokes the region as slavery once did, but there have always been those who stand up to injustice. As local grassroots activist Margie Richard said, “If my ancestors could stand up to slavery, I can surely stand up to Shell.” On this ride, learn more about Black history and the environmental justice movement in Cancer Alley and trace the line of resistance from yesterday to today.
