In this “REVOLT Black News Weekly” segment of “Stand Up For,” we turn our attention to Black farmers who are trying to survive, as they struggle to serve our communities. We dive into the future of these individuals who are attempting to make an impact one crop at a time. On the show, we walk through their journeys with the help of farmer Kendrick Ransome of Golden Organic Farm in North Carolina. Kendrick details just how the struggle is real, and exactly how we need to support Black farmers.
Inspired by Sean “Diddy” Combs’ successful “State Of Emergency: The State of Black America & Coronavirus” town hall, “REVOLT BLACK NEWS” is a platform that is designed to report news from the perspective of Black people for Black people.
“When I started REVOLT, I always wanted to develop a platform to report the news from our perspective, from our lens, from our people, so I decided to launch ’REVOLT BLACK NEWS.’” said Combs. “We’re here with solutions. We’ve already heard about what we can’t do, but this is what we can do.”
