Being Inclusive, Outdoors

A short film screening and conversation with Mardi Fuller
Apr 16, 2023, 11 AM–12:15 PM
Wellesley College Botanic Gardens Visitors Center
Free and open to the public

Join outdoorswoman Mardi Fuller for a screening and discussion of the critically-acclaimed short film, “Mardi & the Whites.” The 10-minute film is about Mardi’s experiences in the White Mountains on Abenaki land. Mardi has summited all forty-eight 4,000+ foot mountains in all seasons. She has experienced great joy from communing with this landscape, but the overwhelmingly white hiking community complicates her experiences. Recently, she has focused on creating more opportunities for Black folks to join her, and enjoying this land with her community has strengthened her sense of identity as an outdoorswoman.

Please register in advance. Light refreshments will be served before the event.
