Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide To Liberation on the Land

There is both power and pain in the process of reconnecting with the land and reclaiming the rights to this rich agricultural knowledge and culture, and Penniman tackles the question of how to do that with this book, and advocates for activists to engage with agricultural and environmental issues we face globally as a Black issue. As Penniman quotes, “Revolution is based on land. Land is the basis of all independence. Land is the basis of freedom, justice and equality.” - Malcolm X.
