In conversation with Khaliah Ali Wertheimer

Dubbed the “Erin Brockovich of Sewage,” Catherine Coleman Flowers is a hero of the environmental justice movement. She is the rural development manager at the Race and Poverty Initiative of the Equal Justice Initiative and the former founder and director of the Alabama Center for Rural Enterprise. A crusader against the lack of basic sanitation in the rural United States, Flowers claims that these conditions foster an array of ancillary negative consequences. Waste tells the story of her transformation from country girl to student civil rights organizer to MacArthur Fellowship-winning frontline activist.
