“The Cookout” Is A Part of the Great Outdoors

Cookouts aren’t just sites of familial and cultural significance—they’re also a way for Black people to enjoy the beauty of nature.


This summer, we are welcoming a new season full of joy, activity, and ease. In the spirit of warmer weather, collective play, and abundant hours spent basking in the sunshine, we invite you to rejoice, recreate, and relax. These summer stories will inspire your next outdoor adventure, encourage you to reflect on your relationship to land, and give you reason to celebrate in community.

Radicle Magazine: Issue 01

An interactive publication inviting you to take root.

In April 2021, we released our first issue of Radicle, a print publication designed to be a medium for your personal germination. It’s the perfect coffee table book with dynamic pages that are waiting to be written on, spattered with sauce, mulled over, and revisited. As you take root, Radicle will be your toolkit, your workbook, your guide, and your companion.


Earth in Color combines creative storytelling and nature experiences to strengthen and affirm Black cultural connections to the natural world.
