Black to Nature: Reconnecting with our Natural Roots
June 17, 2021 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Join us for a lively panel discussion on the historic relationship of African-Americans to nature and the land, and how these relationships have been strained by societal and structural forces. We’ll highlight local organizations working to help Black people rediscover their connection to nature, and discuss how cultivating positive experiences in nature can help us heal from personal and shared trauma. Panelists include Latiaynna Tabb and Pamia Coleman, co-founders of Black Girls with Green Thumbs, Camila Rivera-Tinsely, Director of Education at the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, and outdoor enthusiast and a volunteer hike leader Robin Roberts.
