Join us as we celebrate the release of Leah Penniman’s new book, Farming While Black.  The Black Kreyol educator, farmer/peyizan, author, and food justice activist from Soul Fire Farm in Grafton, NY exposes a global network of farmers working to increase farmland stewardship by people of color, restore Afro-indigenous farming practices, and end food apartheid.

Penniman will share the stage with others from the remarkably talented Soul Fire community including: Taina Asili, DJ Trumaster, Naima Penniman of Climbing Poetree, Amani O., donfons, Jordan Hill, Ada Harper and others.

The event will be complemented by shared African heritage foods! Provided by Ria as well as Amy Halloran and Unity House.
