Finding connection with our environment through graphic novels.

Graphic novels like the Black Panther series introduce us to new worlds and new ways of understanding ourselves and the environment. Join award-winning climate writer, Kendra Pierre-Louis to hear her thoughts about what the fictional world of Wakanda can teach us about climate adaptation and resilience.

Kendra Pierre-Louis is a senior climate reporter with the Gimlet/Spotify podcast How to Save a Planet. Previously she was a climate reporter with The New York Times and a staff writer for Popular Science (PopSci) where she wrote about science, the environment, and, occasionally, mayonnaise. She is also the author of the book, “Green Washed: Why We Can’t Buy Our Way to a Green Planet.” Kendra has Masters’ in Science Writing from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and in Sustainable Development with a focus on Policy Analysis and Advocacy from the SIT Graduate Institute. She also has a B.A. in Economics from Cornell University.
