Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Black and Green is a call to action for the Black community to join the green movement. The book offers insights, ideas, and strategies that demonstrate how Black people can benefit from this movement and also fuel the go-green effort. Ali builds on the premise that the call to 'go green' has not quite resonated in the Black community and discusses several reasons as to why. Ultimately, he offers tangible benefits that Black colleges, churches, and even cities should be eager to embrace. These include better health, neighborhood crime reduction, and new jobs. This book clearly broadens the 'go green' discussion to include the Black community in a way that is both compelling and engaging.
