Night Fire is the inspiring story of one woman’s fight to save her town from the ravages of illegal pollution and environmental racism. Margie Eugene Richard was raised in the shadow of the New Orleans Refining Co., and witnessed her neighbors fall ill as a result of the toxic waste the plant emitted year after year. Determined to see the company take responsibility for their actions, Richard and her neighbors-largely poor and with few obvious resources-educated themselves not only on the consequences of environmental poison but also on how to fight back.The unexpected results landed Richard the prestigious Goldman Environmental Prize, helped clean up a community, and demonstrated how determination and grit can topple even the most stubborn of corporate giants.
