Highway Resistance in the Old South

A black and brown neighborhood facing the threat of an Interstate Highway built through their homes by an uncaring council of local governments and old fashioned racist business leaders. Getting to know the homeowners and residents of Allendale has restored my faith in people and I’m inspired by their struggle.

Follow along as they battle big government and racist practices from the past.
