African Americans have always had a complicated relationship with farming, despite being the backbone of America’s early agricultural industry, only 1% of farmers in the country are currently African American. On this episode we hear from African American Studies professor Dr. Valerie Grim, policy expert Eloris Speight, and renowned writer Natalie Baszile, as we explore the history of African Americans and agriculture, from enslavement and sharecropping, to the systemic challenges that Black Farmers still face today.
