Black and Green is a call to action for the Black community to join the green
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.
