A Bigger Picture: My Fight to Bring a New African Voice to the Climate Crisis

This book is about Vanessa Nakate
In "A Bigger Picture: My Fight to Bring a New African Voice to the Climate Crisis," Vanessa Nakate, a pioneering Ugandan climate activist, shares her transformative journey from a reserved child in Kampala to a formidable voice on the global stage. Published on November 8, 2022, this compelling blend of memoir and manifesto exposes the deep-seated inequalities within the climate justice movement. Nakate’s narrative not only underscores the disproportionate impacts of climate change on her community but also critiques the often overlooked racial dynamics in environmental advocacy. Her experiences, from initiating Uganda’s first Fridays for Future protest inspired by Greta Thunberg to facing erasure at the World Economic Forum, highlight the urgent need for a truly inclusive environmental movement. Ideal for high-school readers, this book is a vital resource for those interested in environmental and racial justice, inspiring a new generation to advocate for a sustainable and equitable future.
