QUESTION: altgeld gardens and environmental injustice

question / pregunta: 

i am doing a research project on altgeld gardens, the community that was established near chicago for returning african american solders (from WWII, i believe). it is also, i'm told, one of the worst environmental justice cases in the united states (with a large proportion of chicago's waste going there). unfortunately, i've reached a dead end in my research. do you know of any links/articles that reference the history of altgeld gardens or current community activism in this area?
