SHREVEPORT, La. — On the blocks surrounding Calumet Specialty Products’ Shreveport Refinery the stench of rotten eggs is nearly constant. It’s a sign that hydrogen sulfide is in the air, and residents say the chemicals they’ve come to associate with that smell are responsible for a host of health issues — from cancers to lung disease to nerve damage — that plague families in the area.
Still, hundreds of little wooden houses on small plots of grass dot the blocks surrounding the plant, in the Ingleside neighborhood of Louisiana’s third largest city.
Some houses are so close that their backyards end where the Calumet’s chain link fence begins. The plant’s smokestacks are the skyline. It’s not that people don’t mind the smell, but they say there’s little they can do.

OUR TRUE HISTORY 18x24 NEW PRINT DROPPING NEXT WEEK! 
WIll be available on here next friday. 
I created this image 3 years ago in 2010 for my Ganas 2020 solo show in San Francisco.  Originally it was a Canvas.  Recently I started releasing more and more prints and due to the energy of the world and the  journey of DECOLONIZATION that millions of people across world of all colors have recently embarked on.  This image was inspired by the american history books in american public schools who never teach us the true history of this country let alone teach people with indigenous ancestry to the continent the true history of their ancestor.  This image is in honor of our ancestors.  This print’s purpose is to hopefully get people to question borders / colonizations / nation states built over our ancestral nation / our indigenous diet / our connection with nature / womyn and men dynamics / medicine / and many types of KNOWLEDGE.  I believe this is a good time for this print to become available at a decent price that even non collectors could afford.  This one is an edition of 100 and selling for 35 which is a really nice deal for a signed/numbered screen print.  #DECOLONIZE #OURTRUEHISTORY
