‘Queen Sugar’ Author Natalie Baszile on the New Black Farming Revolution
In a week that marks one year since George Floyd's death, there’s no better time to talk about cultivating the world we deserve. Queen Sugar author Natalie Baszile believes that true Black freedom is tied to land ownership, food sovereignty, and a renewed dedication to the soil. She talks to Brittany about her new anthology that’s been making waves, We Are Each Other’s Harvest, and how a new generation of young, Black farmers are returning to the land and building upon the legacy of their ancestors. Plus, Brittany brings us the latest Untrending News. Here’s a list of the resources Natalie mentions in this episode: Soul Fire Farm - Reparations map to donate land to Black farmers (https://www.soulfirefarm.org/get-involved/reparations/) The Tall Grass Food Box - CSA program (https://www.tallgrassnc.com/) Planet FWD - For coordinating organic food supply (https://planetfwd.com/) Jubilee Justice - A Black farmer funding alternative to the USDA (https://www.jubileejustice.org/our-mission)
