African Americans in the Natural World
Join National Park Service ranger Betty Reid Soskin and Rue Mapp of the social network Outdoor Afro as they discuss the state of African American participation in our national and regional parks.
I am honored to share the stage with Ms. Betty Soskin, who will share personal memories of East Bay life and working conditions during World War II and show a short film about Richmond’s Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park.
Following Ms. Soskin’s presentation, I will highlight the variety of city and regional parks in the Oakland area and encourage audience members to share their experiences.
