The thesis of BGWB: despite "nature" (or space in general) historically being a tool for white supremacy, Black folks have always nurtured (and continue to nurture) loving relationships with the natural realm, and there's an archive of images that exemplifies those relationships. Over the past few months, it has been incredible to see support for BGWB's thesis swell.
With that swelling support, I've been thinking about how lucky I am to be a part of an incredible ecosystem of online (and offline) activists who are using the Internet to create space for critical, life-affirming, inclusive, and accessible dialogues intersecting nature, identity, power, oppression, and privilege. We're in an interesting moment that's seeing the rise of a kind of digital environmental activism. An activism that's innovating uses of technology that are not only transforming our digital landscapes, but our physical ones as well. That's some truly science fictional shit!
As this era of "futurist environmentalism" continues, I have questions: how can we continue to innovate digital platforms to create a more diverse, equitable environmental/sustainability/food justice landscape? What're some ethical concerns to consider when intersecting tech and activism? How can we better archive this moment and also expand it? Who're some of your fave people doing "futurist environmentalism" (some of mine are tagged above and below!)? ◾◾◾◾◾ Tag us; use #BGWB or #BeingGreenWhileBlack; or DM us to submit an image to be featured! ◾◾◾◾◾ #BGWB #beinggreenwhileblack #environmentalism #sustainability #futurist #futurism #nature #outdoors #diversity #identity #power #privilege #technology #oppression

Thank you @beinggreenwhileblack for your beautiful Instagram of highlighting and honoring Black environmental heritage. Here is a re-gram of writer, scholar, and activist, June Jordan, who had a background in urbanism, enivornmental design, and architecture though many do not know this about her.

This weekend I hosted an alfresco dinner party and I'm still working on my hangover. Who knew New Zealanders drank so much? 😩 #whpcolorstudy

#BlackGirlsWhoBlog has gained a huge following of over 70k on Instagram and acts as a networking tool for a community of bloggers. When she's not keeping us up-to-date with the happenings of brown girls from all over, Morgan is working behind the scenes on Gucci’s e-commerce team and enjoying a glass of wine or two.

Her Agenda was able to chat with Morgan to get an inside look at #BGWB and dig into how she balances building a brand with a 9-5, the importance of recognizing black girl bloggers, and how to stay three steps ahead of procrastination.

The relationship between rivers and Black life has always fascinated me. In Black cultural content, rivers are often symbols of liberation or interconnectedness amongst those in the African Diaspora. We've historically baptized ourselves in rivers. A detail I always think about is that Emmett Till's body was recovered from Mississippi's Tallahatchie River. The Combahee River Collective named itself intentionally. How do rivers show up in your life?

#UnlikelyHikers #OptOutside / @unlikelyhikers \

I’m a first generation Salvadoran American who grew up on soccer and hot cheetos. “Hiking” didn’t enter my vocabulary until after college. When it did, I thought it was a ridiculous word used to exclude people, and for the most part I still think it is :P I’m an unlikely hiker in the US because of a white dominated narrative and history over nature/environment that has excluded POC from being the faces of the outdoors. BUT most importantly though: I love nature and couldn’t exist without it. I’m a pretty private person, but @unlikelyhikers inspired me to take the opportunity to reflect and write! Thanks y’all 👏🏽👌🏽

My body, my looks, my language are all implements of resistance. They are not inherently so. They were made that way by forces oppression, disregard, belittling, and neglect. But now, with my body as a tool, I upend those forces, take up space, speak too loudly, gesture widely. My body is #criticalecology .

When you have a church home where the glory of God falls and He just sits in the sanctuary amongst His people. This is actually a candid shot of me throwing a tantrum because the lighting wasn’t right lol. However, I saw this and immediately thought of how whenever I walk into Powerhouse, I’m ready for worship. I’m ready to give my God all of the praise that is due Him! God has been too good to me to be quiet about it.

Update on lavender propagation °
Don't leave lavender in direct sun. As you can tell lavender leaves burn in the sun because the leaves hold the "oil" . So move your plant to a shadier spot in your home.
I'm moving this guy to a shadier spot in my room. We will see what happens next.

Name that rap group. 😎🤣

How many times do you click "I agree" to the terms of service put forward by tech companies? How often do you *actually know* what types of info are being collected about you? Does uninformed data collection by powerful institutions controlled by rich white people sound familiar? It should! Data collection on oppressed people happened with the US govt Tuskegee syphilis experiment, with forced sterilization of Black American citizens, and with the collections of Henrietta Lacks' cells (still used in lab research today, look her up). Today, that data collection just looks a little different.
.
We have data collected without our informed consent all the time, but that data goes on to benefit corporations and capitalism. Rarely (if ever???) does does that data come back to benefit communities. This includes information from what certain communities shopping preferences are, to the places we go, to the water different communities drink.
.
Can systematically oppressed people harness the data that's often used against them for empowerment? I'm talking about info on what we do and where we go, but also what *environmental* conditions that marginalized people encounter. How can we use big data analysis as resistance??

Tag a friend who's data inclined, always wants to see the receipts, or who loves gaming the system with its own tools! @darbybridget 😘
