Black Faces, White Spaces: African Americans and the Great Outdoors
Oct 11, 2012, 2:30pm-4pm
Carolyn Finney from the University of California, Berkeley will present research from her forthcoming book that explores the relation of African Americans to the environment and to the environmental movement. In particular, she investigates the role of memory and identity in influencing African American environmental participation, as well as the general disconnect between African American environmental professionals and their white counterparts regarding the perception of exclusion and racism within an environmental context. Her talk will address themes of race and nature, community based research and environmental decision-making.
