SEAS Hires Two Top Environmental Justice Experts

SEAS is welcoming two new members to its faculty: environmental justice experts Drs. Brandy Brown and Cedric Taylor. "As a highly respected energy strategist and former Climate and Energy Advisor for the state of Michigan, Dr. Brown brings a depth of experience in both the public and private sectors,” said Dean Jonathan Overpeck. "As a sociologist, documentary filmmaker, and associate professor, Dr. Taylor combines scholarship with the ability to communicate injustice through the powerful lens of media."

"To be a black person is to come from a long bloodline of survivors and storytellers, with a resilience that people can't even comprehend." - Lena Waithe

In SEAS's commitment towards decolonizing and creating a more equitable world, we want to acknowledge and rectify the erasure and minimization of black and indigenous environmentalists in conservation. We commit to promoting prominent black environmental historians and authors through our coursework and programming.
