An Oystering Community Contemplates Life Without Oysters

March 16. 2011 – An Oystering Community Contemplates Life Without Oysters

But the BP oil spill shut down the oyster industry in this predominantly African-American community, and residents say it will take years to return. Produced by Barry Yeoman and Richard Ziglar.
