About The Event

First Reading from the Critical Reading Series: Farming While Black;

Soul Fire Farms, Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land

by Leah Penniman

Throughout the chapters Penniman uplifts the wisdom of the African diasporic farmers and activists whose work informs the techniques described from whole farm planning, soil fertility, seed selection, and agroecology, to using whole foods in culturally appropriate recipes, sharing stories of ancestors, and tools for healing from the trauma associated with slavery and economic exploitation on the land. Woven throughout the book is the story of Soul Fire Farm, a national leader in the food justice movement.
