Supurb Narration

This piece is inspiring. The format chosen for this story is appropriate and the narration is interesting and conversational(what a great radio voice!), which I believe to be the producer's greatest strength. The topic seems important to Ahmina and in turn, the listener is able to understand her concern. I also appreciated the examples used of the powerful black environmentalist.
While tying the story together with the cliche phrase, "green is the new black" and hoping black can be the new green is somewhat catchy, I often prefer to stay clear of overused sayings.
Great job
