The book and the companion exhibit, “Distant Echoes - Black
Farmers In America”, offer us more than just a documented
record in pictures of the demise of black family farmers in this country.

we feel their dignity, grace, humor and spirit as they battle the onslaught
of globalization, changing agricultural technology, and discriminatory
lending practices by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
