The N Word: Nature Revisited – A performance by Dr. Carolyn Finney

Sunday, March 6, 4:00pm - 5:30 pm

Dr. Carolyn Finney is a storyteller, author, and cultural geographer with broad life experiences – an acting career,travel in Africa and Asia, living in Nepal, then finally returning to school to complete her degrees. Along with public speaking, writing, media engagements, consulting and teaching, she served on the U.S. National Parks Advisory Board for eight years. In this time of renewed national awareness, as a Black woman she wonders, “What if I could have a conversation with [John] Muir on my terms? How might I explore race, Nature, and privilege, and the relevancy of his perspectives in our conversations and environmental decision-making while honoring my own experience of Nature?”
