American Masters | Clip | When Environmental Justice Meets Human Rights

The environmental justice movement came from communities that historically bore the brunt of hosting waste sites in their backyards.

This video with archival footage is an excerpt from American Masters: A Fierce Green Fire, airing April 22, 2014.
