Hear Walter Hood, founding principal and creative director of Hood Design Studio in Oakland, California, describe how the elevation of neglected spaces in urban neighborhoods through landscape interventions and public art offers opportunities to address stories of marginalized communities. He also discusses his book Black Landscapes Matter, a collection of essays co-authored with Grace Mitchell Tada, which acknowledges the widespread erasure of black geographies and cultural landscapes, and sheds important light on recognizing and honoring their significance.
