Guest post at NYU Press on Racist Soap Advertisements

I have a guest post on NYU Press’s From the Square blog about the relevance of racist soap advertisements from the Gilded Age to today. The post is based on part of Chapter Four in my forthcoming book Clean and White: A History of Environmental Racism in the United States from Monticello to Memphis (NYU Press).
