Here at Hamama, we believe that Black History should be learned and appreciated. The best way to celebrate and appreciate black history is to support black endeavors and business. Here is a list of black owned farmers that you should support:
Soul Fire Farm
Black Farmers Collective
Rise and Root Farm
Mothers Fines Turban Farms
Black Food Justice
Another way to support the black farmers movement is to support the Justice For Black Farmers Act which was introduced by Senator Cory Booker. According to BlackFoodJustice.org, the Black Farmer’s Act “will enact policies to end discrimination within the USDA, protect remaining Black farmers from losing their land, provide land grants to create a new generation of Black farmers and restore the land base that has been lost, and implement systemic reforms to help family farmers across the United States.” To support this Act, contact your local senators and tell them to support this bill.

As James Baldwin said, “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.” We know the history and the facts, and now is the time to turn our knowledge into action.
