Educator and Activist: My Life and Times in the Quest for Environmental Justice
Bunyan Bryant Jr.
Biografía del autor
Bunyan I. Bryant Jr. is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan. In 1972, he became the first African-American member of the School of Natural Resources and Environment faculty at the University of Michigan. He is considered a pioneer in the field of environmental justice. During the 1990s, Bryant organized the first Michigan Conference on Race and the Incidence of Environmental Hazards and joined a group of prominent academics, later known as the Michigan Coalition. Their advocacy efforts helped lead to the creation of the EPA's Work Group on Environmental Equity. With Paul Mohai, Bryant co-published Race and the Incidence of Environmental Hazards (1993), which was one of the first major scholarly books to explore the links between race, class, and environmental hazards. Bryant also established an Environmental Justice program at the University of Michigan which was the first in the country to offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in the specialty. Bryant’s work has been recognized with numerous academic and other honors, including the environmental justice champion award at the Flint Environmental Justice Summit on March 10, 2017.
Descripción del libro
Bunyan Bryant grew up in a poor neighborhood in Little Rock, Arkansas, where the streets were unpaved and where Blacks like him had to step aside when a white person walked by. By the time he was in high school, his family had moved to Flint, Michigan, where the racism was less overt but the schooling was, if anything, a little worse for a bright but alienated Black teenager. Bryant fled a soul-killing job at the local Buick plant by enrolling in college—despite his belief that a Black kid could never get a fair shake from a white teacher, let alone a white society still grappling with Jim Crow. College changed Bryant’s life forever. He ended up earning two graduate degrees and founding one of today’s most important social science disciplines—the field of environmental justice. Educator and Activist is Bunyan Bryant’s story—a vivid account of his journey as an educator and activist in the movements for civil rights, students’ rights, women’s rights, international peace, and a healthy environment for all. As a young professor, Bryant was chosen to launch the University of Michigan’s pioneering School for Environment and Sustainability. Through U-M’s Environmental Justice Initiative, which he directed, Bryant and his students helped poor communities expose the dangers of pollutants and fight for fair treatment from businesses and government. Bryant went on to travel the world, studying and supporting battles for environmental and social justice. Under Bill Clinton, he helped agencies like the EPA craft policies for tackling problems from industrial waste to climate change. And he mentored a generation of passionate young advocates to carry on his work, including such leaders as Mona Hanna-Attisha, the physician and activist renowned for her work in combating water pollution in Flint—the very town from which Bryant’s own unexpected journey to leadership had begun. “Things have changed,” Bunyan Bryant has said, “but for me, they haven’t changed enough.” Educator and Activist captures a life dedicating to making change happen—from college classrooms and legislative chambers to communities around America and the world.
