• Pauline Peters



I am an African-Canadian woman with a deep intrest in race, ecology, mythology and feminism. These issues are the focus of my poetry. I think it is safe to say that not enough has been written about the relationship between the African diaspora and landscape. Rooted in the earth: reclaiming the African American environment heritage by Dianne D. Glave is one of a few exceptions. My writing is an attempt to add to and encourage what I hope is a growing dialogue on the connection between race and environment.
