Second part of documentary short on Mayflower oil spill

Posted By on Fri, Nov 29, 2013 at 12:53 PM


Here's part two of "Shattered by Oil: Exxon Arkansas Spill and the People Left Behind," featuring Elizabeth McGowan, the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who covered the aftermath of the Pegasus pipeline rupture thanks to donors who contributed to a crowdfunding effort by the Times and InsideClimate News. This mini-documentary — see part one here — was produced by InsideClimate News and PBS' "This American Land." It was funded in part by our crowdfunding effort. 

If you've followed our reporting on the spill, you'll recognize several familiar faces in the video, including Central Arkansas Water's John Tynan and Little Red River fishing guide Lowell Myers
