Special thanks to Courtney Brown of Hunter Rowe Real Estate Agents and Advisors for sponsoring this series.

In this presentation, you'll meet Kamal Bell of Sankofa Farms. Mr. Bell started an Agricultural Academy on Sankofa Farms in order to teach young black men living in low-income neighborhoods of Durham County about the history and vocation of farming. Kamal helps these youth understand the legacy of race and farming for African Americans, and he's empowering these young people to take the knowledge and skills they obtain at Sankofa Farms, LLC back into their communities. He's creating pathways for healthy living as well as careers.

+PLUS+ learn how you can take action in your community through two Farmer Foodshare Programs: Food Ambassadors and Donation Stations. A brief training will get you prepped to lead the way in your neighborhood.
