Distrust & Disparities: Dismantling Black Health Disparities

Black Farmers & Stolen Land

June 16, 2023

Black Farmers & Stolen Land

In this episode we examine the disenfranchisement of Black farmers that has robbed our communities of generational wealth, access to equitable resources and education, and significantly contributed to Black health disparities. 

And we highlight the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund, an organization that has saved millions of dollars’ worth of Black-owned farmland.

Visit the FSC/LAF website to learn about their legacy rooted in cooperative economics, land retention, and advocacy for Black farmers and landowners.
