In honor of Black History Month and Black farmers globally, join Pollinate Farm & Garden and Farms to Grow, Inc. for tbhe Second Annual "Black Hands in the Soil", an evening of film, including a feature and shorts about the legacy of Black farming in the United States and the United Kingdom. The Feature Documentary is "The Language You Cry In" Directed by Angel Serrano, Alvaro Toepke, with Vertamae Grosvenor. "The Language You Cry In" tells an amazing scholarly detective story that searches for -and finds- meaningful links between African Americans and their ancestral past. It bridges hundreds of years and thousands of miles from the Gullah people of present-day Georgia back to 18th century Sierra Leone. It recounts the even more remarkable saga of how African Americans have retained links with their African past through the horrors of the middle passage, slavery and segregation. The program also includes the following shorts: —Lest We Forget: The Lost Stories of Southern Sharecroppers. —Black Farmer UK Admission is a Sliding Scale donation / no one turned away for lack of funds. Light refreshments will be served.
