‘We Are Each Other’s Harvest:’ The Past, Present And Future Of Black Farmers
They’ve lost over 90 percent of their land over the past century. But throughout the country, their stories are little known.
Naima Penniman of Soul Fire Farm and author Natalie Baszile talk with us about the history of Black farmers in the United States, the impact of the American Rescue Act and what it means to reclaim the land.
Find a poem by Naima Penniman, excerpted from Natalie Baszile’s We Are Each Other’s Harvest: Celebrating African American Farmers, Land, and Legacy here.
