Black to Nature

On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by Jason Swann (@risingroutes), founder of Rising Routes to talk about the Black community’s relationship with hiking and nature based activities.

We discuss why nature based activities are automatically labeled as “white people stuff,” how Black women lead the charge of connecting with nature, and the unforgettable experience that pushed him to create his company. Listen and give us your opinion!
