Students standing in front of trees, with filtered sunshine.

A group of environmental studies students will talk about their fall break research trip to Africatown, Alabama, the community founded by the survivors of the last ship to illegally bring enslaved people to the United States.

The students will discuss Africatown’s present-day environmental justice threats and the preservation and advocacy work that Oberlin has collaborated on since 2014 under the leadership of Associate Professor Janet Fiskio. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

This event is free and open to the public.

Cosponsored by the Oberlin College Libraries, the Friends of the Oberlin College Libraries, and the Environmental Studies Program. Additional funding from the Doris Baron Student Research Fund and the Environmental Studies Gift Fund.
