Pritzker Finalist Leah Penniman in Yahoo! Finance: America’s Black farmers work to uproot racism

Soul Fire Farm, is a “BIPoC-centered community farm” — the acronym standing for Black, Indigenous and People of Color. The 80-acre (32-hectare) farm was founded in 2011 by an African-American activist, Leah Penniman, and her husband Jonah Vitale-Wolff. It specializes in medicinal herbs, such as mint, bee balm, St. John’s wort and calendula, and vegetables, with the goal of helping fight racial injustice.
