Black Environmental Thought II: Translocal and Transnational Dialogues and Collaborations, 2011-2012
Environmental and agricultural philosophy and ethics deeply inform the practice of Black environmental thought, sustainable agriculture, and Black relationship to the land. Yet, the literature base and primary figures are predominantly European American. For African American environmentalists, farmers and those who have forged a relationship with the outdoors, there is little research or social learning opportunities available to gather together, learn more about how Black environmental thought can and does influence sustainable agriculture both as practice and social movement.
