Cultural Economy and Black History Fellow (ACLS Fellowship)

The Louisiana Bucket Brigade, founded in 2000, is a 501(c)(3) environmental health and justice organization working with communities that neighbor the state’s oil refineries and chemical plants. We use grassroots action to create an informed, healthy society that holds the petrochemical industry and government accountable for the true costs of pollution to hasten the transition from fossil fuels. Our vision is a Louisiana that is a healthy, prosperous, pollution-free and just state where people and the environment are valued over profit.

The heart and soul of what we do is supporting communities impacted by the petrochemical industry in Louisiana. The disproportionate impact of the petrochemical industry on Louisiana’s African American community has its roots in prior centuries. As such, our work includes historic components, including the identification of historic assets as a way to build power and oppose the siting of petrochemical companies in these communities.

Purpose of Position: The purpose of the Cultural Economy and Black History Fellow is to identify historic and cultural assets along the region known as Cancer Alley. These assets will provide the foundation for exploring the viability of building a more robust economy in a region where most government officials see petrochemicals as the sole road to development.
