LOE Retrospective/ Cancer Alley

To commemorate our 20th anniversary, Living on Earth is digging back into our archives to revisit some of our first shows. This week, we travel down to the lower Mississippi River in Louisiana, an area that over a hundred petrochemical plants, and many African Americans call home.
