March 12, 4-5 pm

Our final Conference on Food Resilience, Access & Equity (CFRAE) session at The Future of Food at SXSW, “Everything Old Is (Not) New Again: Black Farm Legacies,” will include a small panel of food entrepreneurs, community leaders, growers, and farmers discuss Black Farm Legacies:

  • The history of Black farming in the US, post-reconstruction to now;
  • The current challenges around ownership and recognition of the Black farmer’s essential role in the agricultural, foodways, and economic growth of the United States;
  • The fraught history with the government around support for black farm ownership;
  • The current growth and investment by Black-led farm and trust projects around the US;
  • The influx of Black and brown agricultural power with new arrivals to the US
