While riding my bike with my kids this morning on the San Francisco Bay Trail, I noticed lots of people of color on the trail with the same idea. Some were walking, others taking in the stunning weather and view. On our way back home, I ran into Robin and Kristen, from Oakland, California, who had Kristen’s dog along for a stroll. You go girls!
This is the first in a post series entitled Spotted on Sunday or SOS. These posts are a fun way to help make visible people of color outdoors enjoying all types of recreational activities.
Anyone can submit a photo to Outdoor Afro via email, if you first obtain:
- consent to take and share the picture
- name(s) of the individuals — last names not required
- location and brief description of the activity
I’ll select one SOS photo to post each weekend, but all submissions are entered into a monthly drawing to win an Outdoor Afro ceramic travel mug, through July 30, 2010. Winners will be notified via email.
So…join the SOS effort to help make people of color be visible in America’s natural spaces and get a chance to win some cool OA swag!
