Poison Is the Wind

The Africatown neighborhood of Mobile, Alabama is more than a place. Founded as a home away from home by West Africans brought to the US in an illegal slave trade, the community continues to be a steadfast symbol of independence and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. This film follows members of the Africatown community as they fight for environmental justice and historic preservation.
