We hear from activist Hilton Kelley. Raised in the segregated west side African-American community of Port Arthur Texas, the most polluted coastal town in America, he went on to join the Navy and become a successful actor. But at 39 he returned to help restore his community and fight pollution becoming a leading environmental warrior, winning battles around air pollution, PCB incineration and the Keystone pipeline. Along with recalling oil spills he recites a poem that was key to his success, ‘My True History.’
