September 12, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Outdoor Afro presents the sixth annual Glamp In Broadcast gala on Saturday, September 12 at 8 p.m. EST / 5 p.m. PST. This year, the magical fundraising event will bring people together from around the world FREE of charge and online from the comfort of their homes. Building upon the success of five consecutive years of sold out in-person events, this glamorous evening will feature Outdoor Afro Founder and CEO Rue Mapp, keynote speaker Boots Riley (rapper, producer, film director and activist) interviewed by Davey D (hip hop journalist), and hosted by Shelton Johnson (author of Gloryland), along with other inspiring leaders and diverse outdoor and cultural champions. The event supports Outdoor Afro’s programs to inspire Black connections and leadership in nature by helping people take better care of themselves, our communities and our planet.

Past speakers and guests include Ranger Betty Reid Soskin (oldest National Park Ranger serving the U.S. at 98 years old), Carolyn Finney (storyteller, author and a cultural geographer), Sally Jewell (Former Secretary of the Interior of the U.S.) and Barbara Lee (Current California Congresswoman). This year’s honorees include the Pisces Foundation for Partner of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Phil Henderson and Outdoor Afro Leader of the Year Julius Hampton.

About: Outdoor Afro is a national not-for-profit organization with leadership networks around the country. The organization has become the nation’s leading network that celebrates and inspires Black connections and leadership in nature by helping people take better care of themselves, our communities and our planet. With generous support from the community, Outdoor Afro has grown from a humble blog, started at Rue Mapp’s kitchen table in 2009, to the national organization it is today. For more than a decade, the organization has inspired #BlackJoy within local communities and influenced policy makers to protect public lands from the local level all the way to Capitol Hill. With nearly 90 volunteer leaders in 30 states, Outdoor Afro connects thousands of people to outdoor experiences, effectively helping to change the face of conservation.
