(p.1) Introduction
Black Faces, White Spaces

Carolyn Finney

University of North Carolina Press

This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of African Americans' lack of representation in the environmental movement. It then sets out the book's purpose, which is to bring together key concepts and frameworks from several theoretical perspectives in order to understand and explain the intersections of racialization, representation, identity, and their subsequent impacts on African American environment relationships. The chapter draws on frameworks from feminist geography, environmental history, and work on race and identity to examine these themes, and also describes the methodology used in the present study, followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.

Keywords:   African Americans, environmentalism, environmental movement, racialization, black representation
