Black Faces, White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors

Black Faces, White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors

Why are African Americans so underrepresented when it comes to interest in nature, outdoor recreation and environmentalism? The author argues that the legacies of slavery, Jim Crow and racial violence have shaped cultural understandings of the "great outdoors" and determined who should and can have access to natural spaces. 173 pp.

Sea of Glass, A: Searching for the Blaschkas' Fragile Legacy in an Ocean at Risk

Sea of Glass, A: Searching for the Blaschkas' Fragile Legacy in an Ocean at Risk

In "A Sea of Glass," the author recounts a journey of a lifetime, taking readers along as she dives beneath the ocean's surface to a rarely seen world, revealing the surprising and unusual biology of some of the most ancient animals on the tree of life. On the way, we glimpse a century of change in our ocean ecosystems and learn which of the living matches for the Blaschkas' creations are, indeed, as fragile as glass. Drew Harvell and the Blaschka menagerie are the subjects of the documentary Fragile Legacy, which won the Best Short Film award at the 2015 Blue Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit. 215 pp.
