What you need to know, currently.
We have a new story up today from Currently's editorial fellow, Aarohi Sheth, profiling Kadedra Holmes, the founder of Black Nomads Meet:
"Holmes said that contrary to the narratives that mainstream media perpetuate, nomadic living is not a new concept to the Black community," Sheth writes.
'We’re tapping into something that’s deep within our innate nature,' Holmes said. 'Hiking, swimming, camping — we have an attraction to the outdoors, we’ve just been systematically bullied out of the space,' she said.
Climate change, and the environmental racism that stems from it, has reinforced this severed relationship between Black people and their native environment, according to Holmes."
