Our hearts melted when a member of the Outdoor Afro community on Facebook shared a link of photos, like the ones below that show images of black children enjoying and learning in nature in their 4-H camp in North Carolina in the 1940’s.
“What is old is new again.” one member commented. We could not agree more. Enjoy these timeless images that showcase examples of African American connections to nature over time.
