Pritzker Fellow Rhymefest on "Earth's Green Goddess Fighting Oppression: In Conversation with "The Intersectional Environmentalist"
(Current UChicago Students Only)
Wednesday, November 8
Less than one percent of visitors to Yellowstone are Black Americans, and the story is much the same with most of our national parks. What are the historical reasons for that? “Earth Sessions” are community-driven climate justice concerts that use intimate music with educational events to serve as an entry point to the world of environmental justice. Founded by eco-feminist and environmental activist Leah Thomas a/k/a Greengirl Leah, author of “The Intersectional Environmentalist: How to Dismantle Systems of Oppression to Protect People + Planet," which provides advice to environmental activists and describes theories of relationships between race, privilege, social justice, and the environment. This seminar will cover how Leah connected with the power of art and music to influence climate change policies.
