Environmental Justice: Newark’s Industrial Legacy

With funding from the NEH, the New Jersey Council for the Humanities offered 3 community forums in 2011 on the connection between environmental justice and history in New Jersey. These place-based forums, which took place in Bivalve, Newark, and Trenton, brought together groups of academic experts from law, history, African-American studies, and philosophy, with community scholars who have been involved with environmental issues in the state. Each forum was videotaped, and I worked with a team to edit each into a 30-minute synopsis that is available online and has aired on public television. Each forum video is supported by digitized resources and bibliography on their website.

As project manager, I served as executive producer to create a series of videos from each forum. Each forum was taped and then I transcribed and edited it to highlight the most important aspects.
