Hey folks, I’m literally on the plane flying cross-country to take part in the SOLD OUT Breaking the Color Barrier in the Outdoors Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. I finally get the chance to connect with many outdoor professionals, practitioners, and academics with whom I have had only digital and phone contact since the start of Outdoor Afro. My excitement is through the roof because never before has there been a conference dedicated to helping people of color get outdoors, and Outdoor Afro recognizes the privilege to be a part of this groundbreaking event.
So far my flight has been uneventful thanks to some great support from my folks on the ground, but BIG props go to Delta Airlines for having on board wireless, which enables me to write to you now, send tweets, and takes care of my typical flight boredom issues!
Prepare for a tweeting frenzy about this conference! Search for hashtag #BREAKCB to be in the fray if you can’t be there. If you are going to be in ATL, please make sure to add this same tag to all your outgoing tweets to help people get a range of perspective and news.
Stay tuned — and safe travels for everyone headed to ATL!
