Pastor Emeritus, Providence Missionary Baptist Church of Atlanta, Georgia

Mystic
Musician, Bay Area Coordinator, Hip Hop Caucus

While solar panels and electric cars are typically associated with upper-class white folk, the transition to clean energy is also a civil rights issue. Communities of color often live closest to factories and refineries that spew toxic pollution. That’s one reason why polls show more African Americans and Latinos say climate is a serious concern than non-Hispanic whites.

Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley works with preachers and activists across the country advocating for a cleaner and more inclusive economy. Mystic is an award nominated hip hop/soul artist, working out of Oakland for environmental justice and civil rights. Join us for a conversation about the climate and civil rights movements.
