About the Event

Staying active is one of the key components to being healthy. However, there are several areas where black and brown people are underrepresented and too often unsafe when entering these spaces. Tennis, golf, rock climbing, skiing, hiking, hockey, gymnastics, ballet are all activities that contribute to our wellness, but when black and brown people have entered these spaces they have either been unwelcomed or worse. Furthermore, even in spaces where there are a pre-dominance of black and brown faces there are still limitations put into place and blatant discrimination. We will also discuss the economics, city planning and gentrification that collectively work together to prevent access. Lastly and most unfortunately, we will address the threat black and brown people face when simply in public exercising such as in the case of Auhmad Audrey. 

For the discussion, I will have two special guests, Chickaro Martin dubbed The Health Architect and Tiffany Blount from Brown Girls Climb. 

Chickaro's focus involves bringing fitness professionals into the conversation and in positions of influence to address health disparities and preventable health issues. 

As a leader in Brown Girls Climb, Tiffany works to engage women of color and provide a space to enjoy the world of rock climbing. 

As always, we won't just be talking we will also be drawing up solutions. Come ready to take notes and take action!
