Created by AustinPL_Terrazas | 16 items
A list of titles & resources related to and mentioned during the April 1, 2021 edition of the UT Humanities Institute and Terrazas Branch's Controversy & Conversation virtual event, a discussion of the 2011 documentary, "The Apple Pushers" written and directed by Mary Mazzio and narrated by Edward Norton. "This documentary tells the tale of immigrants bringing produce carts into New York City’s inner parts, where obesity and the number of fast-food locations are at unprecedented highs. Without access to fruits and vegetables, diabetes and obesity-caused health issues plague the inner city region. The Apple Pushers not only calls attention to the issue but inspiringly shares how a community worked together to address it." (from the UT Humanities Institute event page.)
