S2 Ep 9: Examining the Clues w/ Dr. Beverley Wright
By Hip Hop Caucus
This week we go to “communiversity” in the deep south. Dr. Beverly Wright, environmental justice pioneer and movement matriarch, joins The Coolest Show to share her infinite wisdom on how we create equitable climate solutions and her perspective on how COVID-19 has impacted New Orleans worse than Hurricane Katrina. In addition to being a scholar, advocate, author, civic leader, and professor of sociology, she is the founding Executive Director of the Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, which addresses environmental and health inequities along the Louisiana Mississippi River Chemical Corridor and the Gulf Coast Region. You may even hear Dr. Wright tell a childhood story or two about Rev Yearwood in this episode! You don’t want to miss this.
