Earl B. Hunter, Jr. with park ranger and campers at Crowders Mountain State Park.

Earl B. Hunter, Founder and President of Black Folks Camp Too

Earl B. Hunter, Jr is an authentic storyteller. He guides his audience to think from a solution point of view. He will present the three reasons why Black Folks have been left out of the life-giving power of nature and discuss the impact this has on our nation’s overall psyche: (1) Fear; (2) Knowledge; (3) Invitation. Earl will share ideas on how we can all help to improve the situation. His presentation will focus on how important it is to INVITE “more” folks into the outdoors. In addition, Earl will discuss how the Unity Blaze, which is the campfire in the center of Black Folks Camp Too logo is quickly becoming the symbol of Unity in the outdoors. The Unity Blaze means “treat everyone, everywhere, equally.”
