Science Not Silence
Your unofficial syllabus to climate change (because, of course, it’s real).
By Strand Book Store

Climate change: it’s complicated, it’s real and it sucks. To celebrate Earth Day, we did some (intellectual) digging to discover our favorite environmental reads. Take a peek to learn what you can do to help our planet (please!).

Author Ruth Feldstein explores the little–known but central role played by black women entertainers–like Lena Horne, Miriam Makeba, Nina Simone, Abbey Lincoln, Diahann Carroll, and Cicely Tyson–in helping communicate and shape the civil rights movement.
