“Racist Roots” Book Talk at Frugal Bookstore

Join us at Frugal Bookstore for an evening with Dr. Christine Carmichael, author of "Racist Roots: How Racism Has Affected Trees and People in Our Cities – and What We Can Do About It." 

Did you know that racism in America has not only affected people's social and political views, but it has also affected our cities' urban trees and green spaces? During this event, you'll discover how our nation's history with racism has impacted urban forests across the country. You will learn about steps you can take to participate in the movement and how you can help change our current system. Whether you are just learning about this topic or are a seasoned veteran, this book will show you what environmental justice truly means.

Dr. Christine Carmichael is the award-winning Founder and Principal of Fair Forests Consulting, LLC, which she began in July 2019. She holds a Ph.D. in Forestry with a Specialization in Gender, Justice and Environmental Change. Dr. Carmichael has published high-impact research and consulted with numerous non-profit environmental groups on ways to enhance multicultural partnerships. This talk is free to the public and will be held at Frugal Bookstore! There will be copies of "Racist Roots" for sale for those who would like to purchase a copy. If you are interested in environmental justice, this is just the event for you!
