Rue Mapp stopped by “NewsOne Now” Monday. Mapp is the founder of Outdoor Afro, an organization that encourages outdoor activity and appreciation among blacks. She told guest host TJ Holmes that blacks have always been connected to the environment through fishing, gardening and other activities. Now, Mapp says, it’s time that we dispel the narrative that we’re not. Listen to the full conversation below.

Be sure to listen to “NewsOne Now” with Roland Martin, weekdays at 7 a.m. EST and watch at 9 a.m. EST on TV One.
