The Colors of Nature: Culture, Identity, and the Natural World
The introduction and 17 essays in The Colors of Nature movingly address the question, “What is the earth to people of color?” Exploring history, displacement, return, and relationship to place, these writers show that the ways Americans have impacted nature are inseparable from racism and inequities in economic and political power. Featured contributors include Jamaica Kincaid, bell hooks, Francisco X. Alarcon, Yusef Komunyakaa, Diane Glancy, and others.
