Black Naturists

In 1927 Maurice Parmelee wrote “it is of great importance for gymnosophy that race prejudice disappear entirely, or be reduced to the lowest possible minimum.” He would certainly be disappointed by the persistence of systemic racism nearly a century later. We discuss being Black in Naturism with Gregory Jean Louis, a passionate listener; Shirley Mason, of Haulover and the B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation; and Michelle Jackson, of the Black Naturists Association.
