Promised Land NPR Piece on Diversity in National Parks with Community Coordinator Paul Martin
This summer, Majora Carter, host of the American Public Media program The Promised Land, visited Yosemite National Park to explore perceptions of why so few black Americans visit National Parks. This hour-long radio show focuses on Audrey and Frank Peterman, authors of Legacy on the Land and founders of Keeping it Wild, a program which aims to encourage black Americans to visit the nation's parks and public lands. WildLink Community Coordinator Paul Martin joins Yosemite Institute students from Houston, Texas, Yosemite Institute Field Educator Mindy Wiper, National Park Service Ranger Shelton Johnson, and Yosemite Superintendent Don Neubacher in offering perspectives to the program. Listen to the show.
