Black Farmers

For those of us who may not be that familiar with the continuous challenges faced by Black farmers, I thought I’d start off the first day of Black History Month 2021, by reposting an article that appeared yesterday in the New York Times.

Below, I have listed a few organizations that provide assistance to Black farmers who live in the South:

Federation of Southern Cooperatives: Provides assistance to farmers living in states located in the Deep South (www.federation.coop).

Land Loss Prevention Project: Provides assistance to farmers living in North Carolina (www.landloss.org).

New Communities Land Trust : Provides assistance to farmers living in Southwest, Georgia (www.newcommunitiesinc.com).

I'm a documentarian and my latest project is focused on the history of African Americans in agriculture.
