Facilitated by Jessica Hyman, Fair HousingProject, CVOEO
with Introduction by Lydia Clemmons, Clemmons Family Farm
Lydia Clemmons of the Clemmons Family Farm, one of the few African-American-owned farms in Vermont, starts us off with an update on the farm and strategies the family is using to hold onto the farm even as property taxes rise and pressure mounts to sell. Jessica Hyman then facilitates a discussion of the documentary Priced Out: Portland’s History of Segregation and Redlining. Please consider watching Priced Out (1 hr.) and Out of the Ashes, Born Again (6 min.) prior to the discussion. Both are available free on YouTube.
This event is part of April Fair Housing Month in collaboration with the Clemmons Family Farm, Fair Housing Project of CVOEO, and Pierson Library.
