Film on Kenya's Green Belt Movement shown Feb. 16
The sustainability film series continues Tuesday, Feb. 16, at Appalachian State University with Taking Root at 7 p.m. in I.G. Greer Auditorium. Admission is free.
The film tells the dramatic story of Kenyan Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Wangari Maathai whose simple act of planting trees grew into the nationwide Green Belt Movement to safeguard the environment, protect human rights, and defend democracy - a movement for which this charismatic woman became an iconic inspiration.
The film is cosponsored by Belk Library and Information Commons. The series is sponsored by Appalachian's Office of Sustainability in conjunction with the Department of Geology.
