Environmental Racism in the United States

Environmental racism is on the rise in the United States, with minority and impoverished communities much more likely to live near polluters and breathe polluted air. In this event, the IMCC’s own Lucy Bond and Jessica Rapson (Cultural and Creative Industries, KCL) will draw on their recent research to highlight how the tourist and heritage industry in the American Gulf States (Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas) is helping to conceal environmental racism as well as being complicit in the air and water pollution crisis that is blighting predominantly African American neighbourhoods.

Booking required

This event is part of the British Academy’s season on Sustainable Futures¬†
