When White Folk Catch A Cold:
A Black Church Huddle on Earth Day
COVID-19 has pulled back the covers on the layers of environmental injustice that confront the African American community. In many cities across the country, Black people have the highest rates of coronavirus infection, are being forced into health hazards on the job, and are experiencing price gouging at the market and long lines for free groceries. These scenarios are not new, but how they relate to environmental justice is not always clear. Join members of the Black Church community on Wednesday, April 22, 2020 - Earth Day - for a conversation designed to inform and ignite action to address the current and coming challenges facing the African American community.
