On this ‘Be Black and Green‘site we focus to highlight and promote the work done by Black framers, land owners and hotel owners. This is the idea that was first coined by our admin Fábio Cardoso Rocha who was awarded by IATP Food and Community. Our team is highly qualified and works day and night to strengthen the relationships between Black rural and framers. We try our best to conduct interview with the Black people who did remarkable work in United States or in any other country.
In this website you will discover short videos of Black farmers who explain why they do farming and how they start doing farming. Our site helps Black farmers to increase their income and way of life.
The Main Objective:
Be Black and Green wants to bring all Black people into one place and create a strategy that benefits them all. We want Black individuals to start their own business and take their business to new height with every passing year.
It is true that there are millions of Black farmers that are into agriculture business but unfortunately many of them struggling in increasing their income and lifestyle. Our forefathers were expert in growing rice, tea, coffee and other plants but now Europeans are taking benefits from our expertise.
It is very hard to digest that even after the end of chattel slavery, many Black farmers are still tied to the land either in form of tenant farming or some kind of share-cropping.
A movement for farmers, downtown agriculture, foods rights and meals safety is creating grip through the entire USA (as well as many other parts around the world). Sooner this movement will be observed by the whites. Be Black and Green asserts that Africans in the USA have always been involved frequently by needs, in order to produce exactly what we currently call with sustainability and also personal-reliance. Which includes developing our foods.
Be Black and Green can be a place to reclaim our gardening historical past. It’s a call to take hold of our ancestral mandate to identify the interconnectedness as well as interdependence of all the issues. It implores us to dare to utilize our personal societal knowledge since the groundwork for frontward movements.
I hope you will join us in this campaign!! Stay tune for more news
