In honor of Black History Month and Black Farmers globally, join Pollinate Farm & Garden and Farms to Grow, Inc. for an evening of film, including a feature and several shorts about the legacy of Black farming in the United States, United Kingdom and Kenya. The Feature Documentary is "Homecoming" by Charlene Gilbert. Homecoming is the first film to explore the rural roots of African American life. It chronicles the generations-old struggle of African Americans for land of their own which pitted them against both the Southern white power structure and the federal agencies responsible for helping them. Director Charlene Gilbert weaves this history together with a fond portrait of her own Georgia farming family into what she calls, "A story of land and love." The program also includes: —The recently released “The Ben Burkett Story: The Unlikely Journey of a Small Farmer.” Mr. Burkett is a 5th generation farmer in Mississippi. —California’s own Will Scott, Jr. and Oakland’s own David Roach, as well as Farmer Brown discuss Black farmers in the short, "Black Farmers Struggle to Remain Relevant”. Two international films in the program from the UK include: —“Young Black Farmers” and Wilfred Emmanuel Jones' “The Black Farmer". —Black women farm, too, and not to be missed is the story of Kenyan farmer Ms. Martha in "The Millionaire Farmer.” —“Black Farmers and their Land" provides a glimpse into St Helena Parish South Carolina, including a brief clip of syrup making. Admission is a Sliding Scale donation / no one turned away for lack of funds. Light refreshments will be served.
