Black Environmentalist You Should Know

This Black History Month I made it a point to acknowledge Black Environmentalists that have changed the environment world and our nation in so many different ways. The people on this list have made their voices heard all over the nation and International. Definitely check out their bios below because they have done a lot for environment Justice through education, advocacy, action, and of course support for the communities they love.
