The Color of Food: Stories of Race, Resilience and Farming

The Color of Food: Stories of Race, Resilience and Farming

by Natasha Bowens, 240 pages, 8x9, softcover. “My father’s ancestors worked in the fields as slaves; in fact, they were slaves owned by my mother’s ancestors.” Unsatisfied with an agricultural history that mirrors and compounds the racial injustices of society at large and puts the redemption of our food system solely in the hands of the white and wealthy, Bowens takes us on a road trip across the U.S. to seek a better narrative. She spoke with farmers from many backgrounds who find strength and resilience in family wisdom, imaginative routes to financial independence, and a powerful sense of tradition and place. These are the unheard voices in the story of the American farmer. Anyone who loves great storytelling will enjoy this book, which is just as much about history, community and activism as it is about farming. Bowen’s photos help bring the stories to life. -Breanna Norris
