Reconnecting African-Americans with the Outdoors

4 09 2009

OutdoorAfroHello Mr. Adair,

I heard that you made a connection with Ms Peterman — I am so excited you connected with her mission and the conference born from it. I just helped her to place your video link on the conference Facebook site: Breaking the Color Barrier in the Great Outdoors. We really hope you can chime in with the group there because what you do is fascinating!

I was personally excited to learn about your work — my own father was an avid hunter and fisherman and I learned many things from him. But since he has passed on, there are rare opportunities I have to shoot or fish.

So I am reaching out to you on behalf of the conference, as a peer champion for the outdoors, AND as a personal supporter based on my own interests.

I would love to write a blog about what you are doing very soon OR you can submit a blog on my site. I was coincidentally working with an old friend on a blog about big game hunting, but since you are African American, I think your story would bring even greater value and fresh perspective to my readers.
