“The Earth, the City, and the Hidden Narrative of Race”
Carl Anthony in conversation with Dr. Mary Evelyn Tucker
Third Annual “Religion & Ecology Summit”
California Institute of Integral Studies
March 16, 2018 

The Earth, the City, and the Hidden Narrative of Race connects the logics behind slavery, community disinvestment, and environmental exploitation to address the most pressing issues of our time in a cohesive and foundational manner. Most books dealing with these topics and periods silo issues apart from one another, but this book contextualizes the connections between social movements and issues, providing tremendous insight into successful movement building. Anthony’s rich narrative describes both being at the mercy of racism, urban disinvestment, and environmental injustice as well as fighting against these forces with a variety of strategies.
