(By Walter Johnson, the Harvard historian of slavery.)

Designed as a bucolic working-class suburb of St. Louis, the nearly 
all-black town of Centreville now floods with raw sewage every time it 
rains. “Bring us back some help,” residents say, living through an 
environmental horror that evokes centuries of official disinterest in 
black suffering, as well as a future in which the poor are left to 
suffer in areas made uninhabitable by climate change.
