About this Episode

As one of the citizens leading the Stop The Burn movement near Camp Minden and a pastor, environmental activist and community organizer, Colonel Sam Mims is an impressive figure. When he took the All Y'all stage, we had no idea what Col. Mims was going to say. He delivered a fiery call to action fueled by his righteous indignation over what he sees as systemic failures of leadership in Louisiana. In his voice, we hear anger and exasperation, but we also hear love and hope.
