People of the Land

Words by Brandon Hightower & Darel Scott

Last year, Earth in Color collaborated with Run The World Clothing on their nature-inspired capsule collection called People of the Land. The collection explored the historical and contemporary connections between Black people and nature. To bring People of the Land to life, we hosted a pop-up at Lake Merritt in Oakland, immersing ourselves in nature’s healing and celebrating our cultural connections to the land.

Read the People of the Land manifesto below.


Today, we are connecting to 
the healing,
liberation, and
abundance
of nature.

Renewing our kinship with the natural world
is the key to Black empowerment.

As we commune 
with one another and with this place,
we are reminded
that we are

PEOPLE OF
THE LAND.
