April 25 | Ryan Emanuel — On the Swamp: Fighting for Indigenous Environmental Justice - with Ashley Minner Jones — at Union Market



Join us at Politics & Prose Bookstore on Thursday, April 25, 2024 at 7:00pm at their Union Market store. Ryan Emanuel will discuss his new book, On the Swamp: Fighting for Indigenous Environmental Justice - with Ashley Minner Jones.


Environmental scientist Ryan Emanuel, a member of the Lumbee tribe, shares stories from North Carolina about Indigenous survival and resilience in the face of radical environmental changes. Addressing issues from the loss of wetlands to the arrival of gas pipelines, these stories connect the dots between historic patterns of Indigenous oppression and present-day efforts to promote environmental justice and Indigenous rights on the swamp. Emanuel’s scientific insight and deeply personal connections to his home blend together in a book that is both a heartfelt and an analytical call to acknowledge and protect sacred places.
