Color My Outdoors storytelling efforts aim to 1) address historical injustices that erased the story of People of Color in the outdoors and created collective fears; 2) highlight People of Color who already occupy this space; and 3) welcome People of Color into the outdoors for the first time. Our work is based in the U.S., with a focus on the southeast—those states formerly known as the Jim Crow South.
