This is brilliant coverage of the fight of Turkey Creek, Mississippi African Americans to save their community. Turkey Creek was founded by freed slaves in 1866. Their descendants have been fighting dispossession by developers and environmental racism for years. I interviewed Wyatt Cenac's guide, Derrick Evans, in January 2006, 6 months after Hurricane Katrina devastated his community with little-reported inland flooding and heavy winds. Derrick is a tireless advocate on behalf of his community and on behalf of the Gulf Coast region.
