So in my long, lamentable stretch working, I’ve seen a lot of rad articles from a lot of rad places about brown folk, specifically brown women, getting outside and doing stuff, that I thought I’d share with y’all:
Rahawa Haile (AT ’16) has been doing a bunch of talking and writing: for Atlas Obscura, for Buzzfeed, for Outside Magazine. She writes with a soul-soothing voice that’s exactly what I’ve needed over the last few months. I look up to her, for real.
Chardonnay (PCT ’15, AT Section ’16) is at it again, about to start a CDT thru; you can find her on her blog here.
Mallory and X have just started their AT journey; they’re blogging about it here.
Minda Honey has a recent-ish piece on Longreads.com that’s a little more frontcountry-oriented, but no less powerful for that.
We’re coming outside, and ain’t nothing gonna hold us back.
I’m 100% sure that I’m missing stuff; if you guys have blogs/books/podcasts/YouTube channels you know that are run by brown folk doing cool stuff outdoors (where my brown men at?!), let me know in the comments!
