Carolyn Finney, professor of geography at the University of Kentucky, will speak at the February Paul A. Olson Great Plains lecture from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Feb. 2 at the Center for Great Plains Studies, 1155 Q St.

Drawing on “green” conversations with black people from around the country, Finney considers the power of resistance and resilience in the emergence of creative responses to environmental and social challenges in our cities and beyond. Using imagination and a little true grit, these individuals challenge us to see differently and do differently in our changing world.

This lecture, “Radical Presence: Black Faces, White Spaces & Other Stories of Possibility,” is free and open to the public.
