Precolonial Textile Cultures, Pt.1

Black Material Geographies

Mar 28 2022 • 24 mins

Our environments impact us from before birth to after death, and we in turn impact them. From the food we eat to the clothes we wear, everything we use comes from the earth...our collective environment. There is no question that the dominant food and fiber systems — from growing almonds in California to manufacturing polyester — threaten the health of our environment and oppress the majority of people on this planet. In this first episode of Black Material Geography, host Teju Adisa-Farrar explores the current material conditions of life in the Western world, resulting from several historical events that must be taken into account if we wish for a better future.
