Greenish Black is the colour of the thin river trickling pass little Senegalese boys playing soccer on the dusty streets of busy Dakar. A river that finds its source at a public dumpster on the corner street; overflowing, caustic..straight up nasty.
Greenish Black is the colour of old vegetables in dilapitated cardboard boxes, beaten by the Montreal sun, sold outside of corner stores in the city’s low-income, mostly immigrant communities.
Greenish Black is the name of this blog. It is an outlet for my my perspectives on environmental issues as an able-bodied, straight, middle-income black father working in the field and working on himself. It’s where my love for writing, music, environmental justice, my family and my take on black culture meet.
Greenish black can be beautiful
