Meet Chevy & Kam (@blk.people.outside)!

Chevy and Kam of @blk.people.outside were inspired by their realization that they were often the only black people exploring national parks and many of their local trails. They embarked on a journey to raise visibility for people of color (POCs) in outdoor spaces, and their goal is to break down invisible barriers that prevent them from exploring the outdoors and ensure that everyone can enjoy the beauty of nature.
