Black Americans have made significant but often overlooked contributions to environmentalism. Recognize this legacy of these leaders, from historical hidden figures, some highlighted in Black Faces in Green Spaces: The Journeys of Black Professionals in Green Careers, to modern leaders advocating for climate justice.
