Oral History premiere of "Old Smokey" history

The Historic Black Church Program is presenting the Oral History Premiere of "Old Smokey: A Community History," on Saturday, August 23.

The documentary  is an oral history of the health outfall from the incinerator located in Village West. The incinerator, dubbed Old Smokey, belched smoke and dropped falling ash settling on surrounding neighborhoods for decades. Tens of sites around Miami have since been identified as containing toxic chemicals arising from the use of the burned remains of the incinerator as landfill.

The evening will celebrate the campus-community Oral History Documentary Film Project and its partnership with the Coconut Grove Ministerial Alliance, George Washington Carver High School Alumni Association, Ransom Everglades School, and Special Collections, University of Miami Libraries.

The event is at Elizabeth Virrick Park (3255 Plaza Street) from 6 to 8 pm. It's free and open to the public.
