Black history and heritage bulldozed by gas boom

The Louisiana community of Mossville is home to families who had passed their land down through generations. Now it's the fifth settlement of former slaves in the state facing industry buyouts.

Many inhabitants have voluntarily sold their properties to the South African-owned energy giant Sasol, which plans to start construction on a massive expansion project in 2016. Yet some residents are determined to stay despite the 10.6 million tons of greenhouse gases the facility is allowed to produce.

Environmental scientist and MacArthur “genius grant” recipient Wilma Subra says the plant will expose residents to volatile organic compounds such as benzene, a cancer-causing carcinogen.

Investigative journalism in the public interest.
Introduction
The Center for Public Integrity was founded in 1989 by Charles Lewis. We are one of the country's oldest and largest nonpartisan, nonprofit investigative news organizations. Our mission: to reveal abuses of power, corruption and dereliction of duty by powerful public and private institutions in order to cause them to operate with honesty, integrity, accountability and to put the public interest first.
