Description
 
Dorcetta E. Taylor. Examines the environmental experiences of middle & working class whites & people of color in the U.S. during the 19th & 20th cent. Race, class, & gender had profound effects on people’s EV experiences, & consequently their activism. While some middle class whites fled the cities & their urban ills to focus on outdoor, wilderness & wildlife issues, some stayed in the cities to develop urban parks & help improve urban EV conditions. The white working class collaborated with white middle-class urban EV activists to improve public health & worker health & safety, whereas people of color developed activist agendas that linked racism & oppression to worker health & safety issues, loss or denial of land ownership, & infringement on human rights.
