Rust Belt

We love to blame the people we don't know and never see. Meet the forgotten people of America's Rust Belt. Some people aren't invited to the Resistance. They meet no definition of the Other. Identity politics excludes them. They're called unlucky when they fall victim to economic injustice. They even take the blame for our national crises - but who are these people? Rust Belt looks right at the underemployed, the working poor and the dreamers of America's changing, post-industrial cities.
