Mossville: When Great Trees Fall

November 10, 2019 - 7:30 PM
Capitol Theater
206 5th Avenue SE, Olympia

Mossville, Louisana no longer resembles what it once was – a community rich in natural resources and history. Surrounded by 14 petrochemical plants, Mossville is the future site of a chemical company’s newest $21 billion plant.

“Welcome to beautiful downtown Mossville. Population: one,” says Stacey Ryan. Mossville, Louisana is a shadow of its former self – a community rich in natural resources and history, founded by formerly enslaved people, where neighbors lived in harmony, insulated from the horrors of Jim Crow. Today, however, Mossville no longer resembles what it once was. Surrounded by 14 petrochemical plants, Mossville is the future site of apartheid-born South African-based chemical company Sasol’s newest $21 billion plant.
