Did you know that about 98% of rural land is owned by white people and over 80% of labor on farms comes from people of color? Our podcast guest this week, Leah Penniman, says that this is not an accident of history. Leah is the Co-Director and Program Manager of the Soul Fire Project, an organization she co-founded in 2011 to reclaim our inherent right to belong to the earth and have agency in the food system as Black and Brown people. Today we’re talking to Leah about the history of black farming, creating a deeper relationship with the land, how to prepare more balanced meals while living in a food desert, and more.
