Luke Cole:

San Francisco founder of the Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment
A giant in the Environmental Justice Movement


An Inupiat Eskimo Village on a small barrier reef island in Alaska
Polluted by the world’s largest zinc mine
Ravaged by the effects of melting ice and vicious storms

The Story:

Of seeking justice, battling racism
Of unlikely friendships
Of transformations, mythical and modern
