we would like to find out whether tree diversity is similar across a subset of four neighborhoods in Brooklyn which differ significantly with regard to the median household income of the residents therein. This is important because trees provide crucial ecosystem services such as filtering air particles and keeping streets cool (Willis and Petrokofsky, 2017). We are interested in exploring the relationship between median household income and tree diversity because tree diversity is important to neighborhood health and quality of life.

My presentation was about Afrofuturism and the impacts it has had on art. In this presentation I analyzed various works from artist Kehinde Wiley through an afrofuturist lens, and addressed the revolutionary way in which Wiley reshapes the past using aspects of the present to speculate towards a hopeful future for black people across the diaspora.
