Farm Film & Music Series: Rooted
July 20 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10
Thursday, July 20th – Rooted follows the story of Germaine Jenkins, a rising star activist and urban farmer in Charleston, South Carolina — the hub of this country’s former slave trade. Germaine’s 5-year quest to gain ownership of the .8 acre parcel of land she calls Fresh Future Farm represents more than her struggle to grow healthy food to combat the toxic diet in her food desert community; as a present-day kind of sharecropper, it mirrors the historic struggle of the Black community in a dominant White system.
7pm Doors open. Enjoy live music by Aura Walmer and tabling with local organizations.
8:30pm Screening: Rooted
