The VPR Saturday Special returns to The Promised Land for the final episode in the series, "Voices from the Gulf Coast."
In this episode, host Majora Carter talks with Wilma Subra, a chemist who has spent her career defending local communities against Louisiana’s powerful oil and gas industry. She received a MacArthur Fellowship for helping “ordinary citizens understand, cope with and combat environmental issues.” She has been addressing the environmental concerns of coastal communities for the last 30 years.
Tune in Saturday at 4 on VPR for a story of resilience and empowerment.
