When we look back on history, we remember the Rockefellers. Our grand sweep of history tends to leave out the little guys. But now, historians and activists are trying to recapture and preserve the stories of working-class communities across the country -- and they're having an impact. This week, we hear from a community activist who helped prevent toxic waste from being dumped in a blue-collar Richmond neighborhood. Plus, we examine how wrong our perceptions of homelessness can really be.
