Thursday, June 20: Farming While Black

Join us for a reception, film screening, and panel discussion. 

Farming While Black is a feature-length documentary film which examines the historical plight of Black farmers in the United States and the rising generation reclaiming their rightful ownership to land and reconnecting with their ancestral roots. From the height of Black-owned farms at 14% in 1910 to less than 2% today. Leah Penniman, co-founder of Soul Fire Farm, and her cohorts help propel a rising generation finding strength in the deep historical knowledge of African agrarianism - and its potential to save the planet.
