The Department of Black Studies is honored to be a campus partner with UCSB's Arts & Lectures "Race to Justice" Series. The programming is absolutely amazing!
Join us for a presentation by father of Environmental Justice, Dr. Robert Bullard and a following Q&A moderated by Dr. David N. Pellow, UCSB Dehlsen Chair of Environmental Studies and Director of the Global Environmental Justice Project. “‘America is still segregated and so is pollution,’ says Dr. Robert Bullard, Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University. With more than four decades of action advocating for racial equality and fair environmental and urban planning, Bullard is widely considered the father of the environmental justice movement. He was founding director of the Environmental Justice Resource Center at Clark Atlanta University, and is the award-winning author of 18 books that address sustainable development, environmental racism, climate justice, community resilience, regional equity and more. In 2019, Apolitical named him one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People in Climate Policy and, in 2020, the United Nations Environment Program honored him with its Champions of the Earth Lifetime Achievement Award.” (UCSB’s Arts and Lectures)
