Black folks have always had a special connection to the land and outdoor spaces. However, due to racial terror, economic status, and/or access, many Black people have avoided engaging in outdoor recreational activities.  Thoroughly cognizant of the history of slavery and lynchings and traumatic horrors that took place on the land, Black women such as Kriste Peoples are forging a reconnection with nature – you might call it a reclamation. 

On this month’s Black Talk, host Michele Simpson talks with Peoples about reclaiming space in the outdoors as a black woman. Tune in and learn how and why Kriste was inspired to answer the call to adventure and has encouraged others to join her.
