How do climate change and racism intersect in American cities and towns to produce risk and harm, as well as possibilities for transformation in Black spaces? What visions for environmental and climate justice have Black communities imagined and enacted?
This conversation brings architects, climate activists, and audience members together around key questions raised in the exhibition Reconstructions: Architecture and Blackness in America. We will consider the environment as not only land, water, and air, but also the built spaces that we inhabit every day, and which are marked by systemic inequality. The discussion will be moderated by David Naguib Pellow.
