Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr. cleared the air about pollution and sustainable existence when he spoke recently at the Green Festival.
The two-day event celebrating a decade of providing eco-friendly solutions to everyday life was held at McCormick Place earlier this month.
Yearwood is the president of the Washington, D.C.-based Hip Hop Caucus, and has traveled the country discussing the need for renewable energy and clean air.
May is Asthma Awareness Month, and Yearwood remarked how staggering asthma rates reached the local level.
