thru-Hiking while Black

webinar sponsors

Recorded July 16, 2020 - The outdoors is not an apolitical space. While many of us picture nature as a complete escape from our day-to-day lives, for some among us, our frontcountry context travels with us when we head out into the backcountry. In a moment where the US is openly grappling with the way white-body supremacy affects the lived experience of Black people, we at ALDHA-West invite you to join us.  This conversation, facilitated by Amanda "Zuul" Jameson, will be a chance to learn more about what these two Triple Crowners are thinking and feeling in the wake of their accomplishments - and in this unique cultural moment.  Produced by Zuul, Kimchi, Punisher, Fireweed & Blis.
