XYZ PRISM co-produced this episode of Vice Overlooked mini documentary. 

A historic community built by formerly enslaved people has become a ghost town after a majority of its residents took voluntary home buyouts offered by a South African petrochemical company looking to expand its plant. The residents thought they were getting fair deals for their homes but some now feel Sasol's voluntary property purchase program amounted to land theft. In Episode 3 of Overlooked, VICE heads to Mossville, Louisiana, following a human rights attorney investigating what really took place and how Mossville residents were financially and emotionally impacted by Sasol's deal.
