Description: In the early hours of March 24, 1989, the Exxon Valdez oil supertanker runs aground in Alaska. It discharges millions of gallons of crude oil. The incident becomes the biggest environmental catastrophe in North American history. Dramatic images shoot across the planet, showing thousands of dead seabirds and sea otters covered in oil. A black tide covers the beaches of Prince William Sound. For 20 years, Riki Ott and the fishermen of Cordova, Alaska, have waged the longest legal battle in U.S. history against the world's most powerful oil company -- ExxonMobil. They tell us all about the environmental, social and economic consequences of the black wave that changed their lives forever. This is the legacy of the Exxon Valdez.
