The Context of White Supremacy hosts our third study session on Dr. Sylvia Hood Washington’s Packing Them In: An Archaeology of Environmental Racism in Chicago, 1865-1954. An environmental epidemiologist, environmental engineer and environmental historian, Dr. Washington is Chief Environmental Research Scientist at Environmental Health Research Associates, LLC. With three decades of research experience examining the impact of industrial pollution on human health and ecosystems, she’s the creator and editor-in-chief of the first international environmental health disparities journal, Environmental Justice. We’ll inspect her 2004 text, Packing Them In: An Archaeology of Environmental Racism in Chicago, 1865-1954. Chicago is a significant city in North America, and black people have sojourned to this region for over a century. Consequently, Whites have devoted a staggering amount of time, energy and resources to study, warehouse, terrorize and poison the black people of the “windy city.” During last week’s session Dr. Hood highlighted Dr. George Washington Carver’s efforts at the turn of the 1900’s to address black people’s problems – which included healthy environments. W. E. B. DuBois a prominent sociologist of the period, also commented on the importance of clean water and air for black people. In fact, Dr. Hood even highlighted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. venturing to Chicago to address poor living conditions for black people as well as final efforts to help black sanitation workers in Tennessee.
