MANRRS DEI Webinar: How Institutional Racism Shaped the American Farming Landscape - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Yeah for land and water conservation!
the resources that Jim talked about sound fantastic... will you be providing information as to how to access them?
So well said, Ebonie! Thank you for your work!
Thank you Ebonie!
So-called "black" people were here prior to 1619.
@Ann Harris- We will see if Jim can send the resources he mentioned to be sent out in the recap email.
NONE!!! That's deplorable!!!
That is eye opening
many of our land grant universities also sit on tribal lands including OSU Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary's River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855 (Kalapuya etc. Treaty), Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (https://www.grandronde.org) and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (https://ctsi.nsn.us).
Yes good question
Wow just looked up a googlemap view of Scottsdale, Stark indeed.
Often, by federal agencies with natural resources management responsibilities, development of tribal lands is seen to be in conflict with environmental conservation.

Speak the truth
Yes we were here in the 1400s as well...
Yes!!! So well said.
Small and urban farmers are thought of as an afterthought. At some point, the neighborhood small farm will be the ones to come to the rescue in trying times - like now.
they are doing it now-- https://www.phoenixmag.com/2020/09/11/feed-phoenix-partners-with-local-farmers-and-restaurants-to-provide-meals-to-those-in-need/
So Important!! Thank you so much for sharing that Ebonie!

COVID has made us come full circle. Small farmers will be the way to resolve the food insecurity and food desert issues in the US. Urban agriculture is in the spotlight now!
Yes- I’ve done it as an urban farmer.
Are there any initiatives to teach the community why owning land and reclaiming farming is important for all communities of color??
Thanks for acknowledging that, Jim.
this position just reopened at UofA: https://extension.arizona.edu/urban-agbeginner-farmer-program-maricopa-county
Reparations is the solution for so-called "black" people...land, money, resources, education that was stolen and denied.
are you intersecting with Land Back movement efforts?
Hi Karen, can you share what you mean by "so-called "black" people, I am a Black woman and this phrase or term is new to me
I think I only sent this to panelists: I recommend the book Freedom Farmers by Dr. Monica White on this topic
Say it !!!
zhow many acres dictate small farmer?
Ebonie says 180 acres or less
Dwyne, Ebonie mentioned it as 180 acres or less in her context
In Florida Sm Farmers have a hard time getting loans from banks or Farm Bureau imagine another unspoken impediment
WHY IS IT STILL IN PLACE... WHY IS IT POSSIBLE?? MIGHT BE A BETTER QUESTION...
I have to go teach, but glad I could catch what I did. Some inspirational folks!
Our identity has been changed many times...the terms "black" and "African-American" have no standing in law. Its not a nationality. Our nationality is American. We are actually indigenous. We are the copper-colored people found her by the Europeans. So many untruths to deny what is rightfully ours.
It was stated that small is less than 180 acres- Well I guess that includes over 90 percent of African Americans and Native people.
Well said Jim!
Yes, resource and tool sharing! Getting back to valuing the concept of neighbors and community!
Thank you to the panel for sharing your insights. Great points raised and reminds me to thank my local small farmers!
Such an interesting conversation.
Alliances and Cooperative are starting to get more traction. Not a minute too soon. We need them to be successful in marketing and distribution.
Black Food Sovereignty Council held "Back to the Root: Pacific Northwest Black Growers Conference" at Oregon State University and Rachel Mallinga <firstname.lastname@example.org>invited MANARRS to the conference.She is currently working for Black Futures Farm on a project involving green infrastructure or regenerative agriculture. They hope to connect with Black folk working in the agriculture field .If you have any questions please email Black Futures Farm at email@example.com
This has been such an informative panel. Thank you so much, Ebonie, Jim, and Julia. Will there be a recording posted that can be shared?
it's a pleasure to be part of this great community. Thanks. Mustapha ỌLÁWUNI, a graduate international student from Nigeria studying Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at Tennessee State University Nashville
Thank you all for hosting this discussion. Thank you for your time Ms. Ebonie and Mr. Jim!

We can also prioritize land owning for the purpose of restoring and preserving natural resources

This was a fabulous event. Thank you so much!
So delighted to have participated in this webinar. As an immigrant from West Africa studying agriculture in a school in USA, this was the first time I got detailed information on the deep rooted problems African Americans and other minorities face in land acquisition. Congratulations to the orgaizers of this webinar.
