Earth Day 1970 Research by Environmental Justice HistoryLab Featured in Washington Post, “What the Older Generations Owe the Young” (April 2020)

Matt Lassiter, the founder of the Environmental Justice HistoryLab, published “What the Older Generations Owe the Young 50 Years after the First Earth Day” in the Washington Post on April 22, 2020. The article for the “Made by History” project draws from the research and interviews conducted by the student team that created the “Give Earth a Chance” digital exhibit.

Adam Rome of the University of Buffalo wrote a companion piece for the “Made by History” in the Washington Post, “Earth Day 1970 Was More than a Protest. It Built a Movement.”
