July 28, 2020: There’s Something in the Water - A Dive into Environmental Racism in the African Nova Scotian Diaspora
In the film, acclaimed actress Ellen Page, inspired by a book by Ingrid Waldron that also lends its name to the documentary, travels across her home province of Nova Scotia to explore cases of environmental racism. This week, we are talking about environmental racism, which specifically refers to the environmental injustice that is based on race.
We reached out to Dr. Ingrid Waldron, a professor and author of the book “There’s Something in the Water”. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Dr. Waldron to discuss environmental racism towards Black communities in Nova Scotia and what liberation could look like.
