Troubling Ecology: Black Feminist Interventions in Environmentalism

Abbéy talks with Dr. Chelsea Frazier (Dept. English, Cornell) about the importance of Black feminism’s political and artistic engagements with environmentalism. From a carefully curated archive of film, twentieth and twenty-first-century literature, and Black visual culture, Dr. Frazier explains how Black femme subjects and their artistic production literally and figuratively re-engineer popular understandings of ecology and reframe art historical narratives around race and materialism.
