PROGRAM: - Shorts African-American Land Loss Although slave labor created the economic basis of U.S. agriculture, the long-term effects of racism and systemic discrimination from the U.S. Department of Agriculture programs continue to sideline African American farmers from land ownership. The Young Black Farmers Defying A Legacy of Discrimination Kendrick Ransome started out farming a few years ago with just a hoe, a rake, and a shovel. He could have used support getting his hog and vegetable business off the ground, but he was wary of asking institutions for help. “My big brother told me, ‘Stay away from loans,’” said Ransome. In 1925, most farmers in his rural hometown of Edgecombe County, North Carolina, were black. But now, the 26-year-old is an anomaly. “When they did take out loans and they were unable to pay them back, you lose everything you got — that’s including your farm and your land for your family.” Ransome’s fear of institutions is based on the centuries of discrimination black farmers have faced across the country. But despite that history, he and other young black Americans are reclaiming the trade. - Feature Harvest of Shame, (1960) "Harvest of Shame" is one of the most celebrated documentaries of all time, in which famed journalist Edward R. Murrow exposed the plight of America's farm workers. About Farms to Grow, Inc: FARMS TO GROW, INC is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to working with Black farmers and underserved sustainable farmers around the country. Farms To Grow, Inc. is committed to sustainable farming and innovative agriculture practices which preserve the cultural and biological diversity, the agroecological balance of the local environment.
