Robeson Rises

United States, 2018 (English)
19m 37s

"Logline: As a proposed pipeline threatens to disrupt communities and ecosystems across North Carolina, a group of diverse activists rises up to challenge construction.

Located in southeastern North Carolina, Robeson County is home to the largest indigenous population east of the Mississippi. It is one the poorest and most diverse rural counties in the country. Robeson County is also the planned terminus of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP). If built, the ACP would lock the community into a fossil fuel-dependent future that threatens the already fragile air, water, land, and livelihoods of local residents. ""Robeson Rises"" chronicles the efforts of Robeson County residents — Native, Black, brown, and white — uniting against the pipeline and advocating for a renewable future. "
