TEDxFruitvale - Will Scott - Bring Back Black Farmers
Static Preview

Slavery left a bad taste in most African-Americans' mouth when it comes to farming. But as Will Scott points out, when we eat together, we don't fight. This nation needs more small farmers, more people growing food in general — black and white. About Will Scott, president of the African American Farmers of California: Will was born in Oklahoma to a family of sharecroppers; his parents moved to Fresno, CA, in the 1940s, where they continued to farm. After enlisting in the Navy, Will served in Vietnam aboard a submarine; later, when he retired, he bought 40 acres near Fresno and began to farm in earnest again. He is the president of the African American Farmers of California, which runs a 15-acre demonstration and education farm to interest African-American kids in agriculture. Event was held on October 14, 2011 at Mills College in Oakland, CA.
