As part of our Land Justice: Re-imagining Land, Food, and the Commons in the United States national book tour, we are excited to present Black Agrarianism: Roots, Resistance, and Regeneration for Land Justice!

Land is power. For African descendants, roots, resistance, and regeneration are deeply connected to the land. Over the past 400 years, many forms of resistance against white supremacist capitalism by African descendants have been rooted in the land, nature, and agrarian identity. Land has served as an essential element for maintaining traditions and identities that have been imperative to resistance and regeneration from slavery into the present.

For this stop on the book tour, authors, farmers, and activists will delve further into the intersections of land, food and racial justice, discussing the historical and present role that land ownership and access has played in the radical Black agrarian liberation movements in America.

With authors Tracy McCurty and Dãnia Davy from the Black Belt Justice Center, Savi Horne from the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers Land Loss Prevention Project, and Richael Faithful, healing artist and attorney; editors Justine Williams and Eric-Holt Gimenez from Food First; plus Savanah Williams from South of the Ferry Farm and Christopher Bradshaw from Dreaming Out Loud and the DC Food Policy Council.
