Art Exhibit: “We Birthed the Movement: The Warren County PCB Landfill Protests, 1978-1982”
September 15, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
Hosted by UNC Chapel Hill Wilson Library
Location: UNC Chapel Hill Wilson Library
This exhibition is open July 25-December 22, 2022, showcasing four years of how a group of concerned citizens in Afton (Warren County) responded to the state’s plan to build a toxic landfill laced with cancer-causing PCBs in their community, mounting legal and scientific challenges to what they deemed an act of “toxic aggression.”
It was curated in collaboration with protest participants, eyewitnesses, and those who continue to organize for justice in Warren County. The exhibit centers their voices and stories in the retelling.
