February is Black History Month, when the Pan-African flag will be displayed prominently. The flag also signifies Black Liberation, its colors emblematic of the struggle and connection to the homeland: the bloodshed for liberation (red), the affirmation of people and descendants of Black Africa (black), and the land of abundant resources (green).
The march continues for attaining full liberation and justice for Black Americans. In Season 2, Episode 2 of The California Table — "Environmental Activism on the Ground" — features the work of Faye Wilson Kennedy and Nailah Pope-Harden with the Red, Black and Green Environmental Justice Coalition in Sacramento.
Faye and Nailah share their thoughts about what environmental justice looks like for disproportionately affected communities, informed by their daily lived experiences.
