Green is the New Black
Green is the New Black (GITNB) is Huston-Tillotson University’s environmental student group. GITNB’s vision is to “foster new shades of green” on the HT campus and in the surrounding East Austin community to make environmentalism more just and more inclusive. GITNB projects include organic food gardens, both at HT and in partnership with Blackshear Elementary, campus recycling, and peer education. GITNB won first place in the Ford Corporation’s HBCU Community Challenge in 2013 with a plan to make HT the greenest HBCU in the country.
