Black to Nature
July 16 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us for a walking series to learn about Afro-Ecology and the past, present, and future experiences of the Black communities in Portland!
In 2018, Portland Black community members came together to develop an Afro-Ecology framework.
The term Afro-Ecology has two parts:
1) The first, “Afro” represents the diasporic cultures that stem from the continent of Africa and are currently living in the United States.
2) The second, “Ecology” is the study, or the process of knowing “eco” or home.
This walking series will highlight important aspects of what became the Afro-Ecology Framework, including community, spirituality, and justice.
As we walk through Portland together, we will dive into where we have come from, who we are now, and who we will become. By acknowledging the past, present and future in this series, we will explore Portland’s rich Black history at educational locations with visioning activities that empower us to create our future.
