Meet the Journalist: Larry C. Price

Pulitzer Center grantee Larry C. Price went to Zambia to photograph what might be the world's most toxic town: Kabwe. The lead and zinc mining that began at the dawn of the 20th century is responsible for the sickening of more than a third of this bustling city of 220,000 inhabitants. In this Meet the Journalist video, Price discusses the pollution that plagues the town and the high toxicity levels that affect the lives of the victims, including young children.
