#167: Profiles Of Black Conservationists
Black people in environmental conservation have not historically received the same visibility in the media. This not only fails to acknowledge their contributions, but also leaves young people without role models in fields such as water.
That’s why a conservationist is profiled each day during Black History Month by Sierra Taliaferro, founder of the Green Obsidian page on Facebook. In this episode, she talks about five years of writing the profiles and shares examples of people she is highlighting this year.
