Dudley Edmondson Lecture

Dudley EdmondsonWe’re excited to announce that our speaker series gets back underway next month with a visit from Dudley Edmondson, a Duluth, Minnesota-based nature and wildlife photographer.  Edmondson has spent the last 19 years documenting nature and wildlife subjects around the country.  He is particularly interested in exploring the way ethnically diverse people see themselves and the way the world sees them.  His 2006 book “Black and Brown Faces in America’s Wild Places” and its companion youth version was conceived to increase minorities’ engagement in outdoor activities and advocacy.  Learn more about him at www.raptorworks.com

Edmondson will speak on the topic “Attempting to Understand the Disconnect Between African-Americans and the Outdoors.”  The lecture will be held on Thursday, March 17 at 6:30pm at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Homewood Branch (7101 Hamilton Avenue, 15208).  Following the hour-long lecture, we’ll serve light refreshments.

This event is FREE and open to the public, but space is limited and advance registration is required.  Click here to reserve your spot.
