4 films | 31 min

Follow the Monongahela River southeast from Pittsburgh to Braddock, Pennsylvania, a steel town whose residents forged America—and paid for it with their lives. The city and its surrounding area have one of the highest cancer rates in the country, and a history of health outcomes split along color lines. Braddock (population: less than 2,000) is also home to people who are determined to stick around and improve their lives and the lives of their neighbors. In this powerful new documentary series, we meet an activist, a filmmaker, a farmer, and a politician fighting to bring their town back from the brink.
