How is race connected to environmental degradation? Middlebury professor Kemi Fuentes-George draws from national and global cases to describe how racism shapes—and is shaped— by environmental management in areas like conservation, waste management, and climate change, and highlights ways towards a more just environmentalism.

Kemi Fuentes-George is associate professor of Political Science at Middlebury College.
