From A Woman's Point of View
Monique Harden, lawyer and long time New Orleans resident, is the co-founder of the Louisiana Environment and Human Rights Commission. She discusses the legacy of African Americans in the New Orleans area, not only in the present Gulf Cisis but the historical developments from the first slave riots in this country around 1830.
She recounts a troubling and fascinating history of the struggles and the environmental degradation which have become the story of these people from slavery to the present time.
