WBGO Reports on ‘Climates of Inequality: Stories of Environmental Justice’ Exhibit

Newark is one of many cities part of the ‘Climates of Inequality: Stories of Environmental Justice’ exhibition
Climates of Inequality: Stories of Environmental Justice is an exhibition that uses virtual reality and other forms of media to tell the stories of communities directly affected by climate change.

Climates of Inequality is a multimedia installation that was created by over 500 students, environmental justice, other community advocates and scholars from twenty different cities across the hemisphere,” said Liz Sevcenko, director of the Humanities Action Lab, a coalition of organizers across 40 cities that curate projects based on social issues.

Sevcenko says the exhibition digs into the deep histories of environmental injustice in the various cities through research, interviews, and VR videos.

“That allow you when you visit the exhibition to visit the places and help to show the kinds of inequalities they’re confronting. And stories of how the communities have developed amazing resilience and resistance strategies that we all can learn from,” Sevcenko said.
