The Black Hive: Black Futures in the Era of Climate Change

The Black Hive, a cohort of Black Climate Justice experts who draw from their collective experience and knowledge to assess how climate change and ecological destruction impact Black communities in the U.S. and across the Global Black Diaspora, are also at the heart of the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL). In this session some leading activists and leaders affiliated with the Hive will share their insights about Black futures in climate and environmental justice struggles, as well as discuss the Parable of the Movement campaign, inspired by the legacy of the late visionary author Octavia Butler. Hosted by Aya de Leon, climate author/publisher, lecturer at UC Berkeley; Devin Murphy, Mayor Emeritus in Pinole, CA; The Reverend Michael Malcom, Executive Director of Alabama Interfaith Power and Light and an ordained United Church of Christ Minister.
