HIP HOP FORESTRY- THE SINGLE, THE PHILOSOPHY
NEW PODCAST WITH YALE UNIVERSITY
This year I started a new venture with Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies by starting my own podcast. I do this work along side Chris Perkins (sound engineer). I'm happy that this is finally out because there are eight powerful and positive episodes.
I interviewed some really great people, but you take a listen and tell me what you think.
Events and Engagements
Join us to celebrate the newly certified MD Green Schools and revel in the accomplishments of our existing Green Schools. We are blending virtual presentations by Green School Students into three 45-minute interactive sessions focused on different themes within the MD Green Schools program.
Dr. Thomas Easley earned his doctorate in Adult Education from NC State University and currently serves as the Assistant Dean of Community and Inclusion at the Yale School of The Environment. In addition to spending most of his career as a diversity professional and a forester, Dr. Easley is also a musician. Through his service and research, he has helped develop pathways for students of color going into natural resources. Join us as Dr. Easley shares his work and guides us in conversation about the importance of environmental justice!
At Stoking Curiosity, Dr. Easley will address changing history narratives, and why he chose to integrate hip hop forestry, and diversity principles to make an impact. He'll tell us how he's shaking up the definition of what it means to be an environmentalist and make all people find their rightful place in the green movement.

The Program is The Shrine House, the place where powerful artists come to share ritual with listeners virtually everywhere. Our focus of the week will be "Earth Love." You'll be able to log onto Facebook Live, Instagram, and YouTube live to view the event.
Diversity is challenging to accomplish, but it's not impossible. While some see diversity as a tool for solutions and making society better, it is still moving slowly when we assess its progress socially. Natural resources disciplines and academic institutions are uniquely positioned to address diversity, equity and inclusion globally. Where do we start? And when do we know we've accomplished our goals? Dr. Thomas R. Easley has spent most of his career as a diversity professional and a forester. As a diversity professional he has focused on the recruitment, retention and diverse talent in natural resource disciplines. As a forester he has worked with landowners and citizens on land management and stewardship. Along with his impressive academic experience, Dr. Easley is also a musician. He is known by RaShad in the world of music. His art is called “Save Your Life Music” because he puts a message of love, embracing self and helping others in his music.
