Environmentalist Pushes Green Sustainable Living in Black Communities

"When environmentalist Naomi Davis walks past the boarded-up homes and businesses in her Woodlawn neighborhood, she envisions a community that will confront the climate crisis by becoming self-sustaining, with vibrant, black-owned stores and green gardens.

It's a way of life that she imagines will combine the best of today's technological advances with the gritty, self-reliance of her grandmother's era.

She admits it's a lot to imagine."
