Is green going to be the new black? Activists see Blacks playing a role in Massachusetts’ green economy

“How do we create jobs in the green space?” asked energy expert Kerry Bowie during a “Green Is the New Black” panel at last week’s packed “How To Boston While Black Summit” organized by media and connector entrepreneur Sheena Collier. “Money and jobs are coming, but we often miss out.”

Bowie, who came to Boston from Alabama to study engineering at MIT, heads the Browning the Green Space coalition to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in clean energy.
