article description
This qualitative study explored Black women's activism and their process of learning and constructing knowledge in the environmental justice movement. By conducting in-depth interviews with sixteen activists from three southeastern states, findings revealed that a passion for home/place energized Black women's activism and served as the epicenter for knowledge construction.
