2015 Annual Meeting and Lecture
Please join the Emerald Necklace Conservancy for our Annual Meeting on March 26, 2015 featuring:
Dr. Carolyn Finney, presenting Radical Presence: Black Faces, White Spaces and Stories of Possibility
Dr. Finney will explore the relationship of African Americans to the environment and to the environmental movement. Drawing on “green” conversations with black people from around the country, Dr. Finney considers the power of resistance and resilience in the emergence of creative responses to environmental and social challenges in our cities and beyond. Dr. Finney’s love of environment was inspired by a backpacking trip around the world and numerous years living in Nepal. She is an assistant professor in environmental science, policy and management at the University of California Berkeley, and a member of the U.S. National Parks Advisory Board. As such, she works with the National Park Service to respond to America’s changing demographics and diversify the ranks of visitors and employees. (Photograph by Lynnly Labovitz)
