Taking a closer look at environmental justice in Bayview-Hunters Point

View descriptionShare

Every place carries a history, from forests and wildlife to the eventuality of roads, buildings, and all the communities of people who lay claim to a space and call it home.

For those who have called - and continue to call - Bayview-Hunters Point in southeast San Francisco home, that history comes with a heavy burden. A burden steeped in abandonment, in racial and economic injustice, and in toxicity that is embedded in the ground and moving through the air.

A new book looks at that history, but also at the activism for environmental justice that black Bayview-Hunters point residents have been seeking for years. 

For more, we're speaking with Lindsey Dillon, assistant professor of sociology at UC Santa Cruz and author of 'Toxic City: Redevelopment and Environmental Justice in San Francisco' which will be released on April 9th.
