Cancelled -- Reclaiming Roots of Color: a Conversation about Agriculture and Social Justice

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

This event has been cancelled.

THIS PROGRAM HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED TO THE FALL OF 2018.

The most recent U.S. Census data shows that agriculture in the United States is becoming more diverse.  Non-white farmers increased by nearly 15 percent over the past five years, compared to a nearly 5 percent decrease among white farmers. This event will provide a forum for learning about the key role of enslaved Africans in opening up farmland in the Northeast during Colonial times, as well as a conversation about current farmers of color in the United States, especially the Northeast. Discussion will focus on social justice in the food and agriculture system.
