pineapple NY: farming while black
To build a better food system, it’s crucial to understand who is growing our food, the complex racial history of agriculture in our country, and the inequities many farm workers of color face. Leah Penniman, founding co-director of Soul Fire Farm in upstate New York, is unpacking this narrative with her work on the ground and in her groundbreaking new book, Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land.
In collaboration with Squarespace, our conversation partner and all-in-one website-building platform, join pineapple NY for the incredible opportunity to hear from this burgeoning leader in the food movement. Leah and Yemi Amu of Oko Farms, an aquaponics farm in Brooklyn, will discuss what it means to be a black farmer today and the ways African ancestral practices are used and abused in the US.
pineapple DC: the Palestinian Kitchen
Award-winning author, human-rights activist, and cook Yasmin Khan travels through Palestinian kitchens in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza in her newest cookbook, Zaitoun: Recipes and Stories From the Palestinian Kitchen. She asks us to consider: what does it mean to be Palestinian today? And how is that reflected on the plate?
Moderated by NPR’s Dalia Mortada, join pineapple DC for a deep dive into Yasmin’s narrative where they’ll discuss preserving and savoring Palestinian identities in the midst of a shifting political landscape, share their own beautiful and moving experiences in the Middle East, and reveal how food can be an entryway into understanding our own and other’s cultures.
