Psalms White

Psalms White

Psalms is a creator, healer, activist, and educator with a passion for educating herself and others about Black history as American history, the impact of power structures on how we view the world, and how to self-care in the midst of these oppressive realities. A native of Charlotte, North Carolina, and a recent graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, Psalms has found great purpose in creating loving and supportive spaces for BIPOC folk, as well as helping others become better advocates for justice. In undergrad she founded Beta Nu Theta Service Fraternity which was dedicated to this purpose. Through her role as a Rising Earth Immersion Core Facilitator, she has been able to continue this work of helping participants realize how they can be of service to the world through their gifts/creativity, experiences, education, and growing consciousness of how we interact with systems of power. As she steps into a larger role as part of the Media & Public Communications team, she looks forward to continuing to expand the Eco-Institute’s networks and opportunities as they relate to increased diversity and a greater capacity for shaping change.
