Dreaming Green: Christian Cooper, John Muir, & Playing the Long Game

Christian Cooper.  George Floyd. Removal of Confederate Statues.  Renaming of institutions. Reparations.  Systemic Racism.  John Muir?  What does the environment have to do with it?  How do we meet this moment?  Drawing from her book, Black Faces, White Spaces, her relationships “in the field,” her lived experience, and this moment of reckoning, Dr. Finney explores the complexities and contradictions of American history as it relates to green space, race, and the power to shape the places we live in our own image. By engaging in “green” conversations with diverse people around the country, she considers the power of resistance and resilience in the emergence of creative responses to environmental and social challenges in our cities and beyond.
