Fighting for Environmental Justice in Princeville Fundraising Screening

Princeville, NC is the first town incorporated by freed, enslaved Africans in America. But, due to hurricanes, white supremacy and political neglect, it is gradually being washed away. Co-hosted by the NC Environmental Justice Network and the Freedom Hill documentary team, this conversation unpacks environmental racism, the treatment of historically Black towns and the work local residents have long been doing to preserve their own history. Proceeds from this event will support Freedom Hill’s impact campaign, including a Youth Media Camp in Princeville, NC and Backyard screening series.
