We are thrilled to have Jo Banner, Founder & Director of the Descendants Project, with us for todays' episode. The Descendants Project is a nonprofit, based in St. John the Baptist Parish, that advocates for the descendants of people once enslaved in Louisiana’s river parishes. They work with the community to improve the economy, improve health, and protect the land, while at the same time honoring their ancestry and heritage.
Learn about some of the amazing work Jo and the Descendants Project does including a lawsuit they filed to correct the illegal rezoning of residential land for use by heavy industry and bringing in opportunities for residents in the film industry to give them another options besides working on a grain elevator or at a petrochemical plant.
