Hi there,

We need PR assistance with a documentary on the legacy of Black farmers. We kicked off a 12 Month - 12 City Tour in September 2022.

Rhythms of the Land Documentary by Dr. Gail P. Myers

During the summer of 2012, Dr. Myers toured 10 southern states -- Texas, Arkansas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee and Florida -- interviewing over 30 farmers, sharecroppers, and gardeners and a 5th generation coil basket weaver. Several of these interviews are with elders, 98, 92, and 109. Suffice it to say, the wisdom and personalities of the elders farmers are infectious. These interviews represent generations of cultural traditions of Black farming philosophy that honors land, sustainability, God, family and love for their community.

Hearing their stories will honor these US farmers, sharecroppers, and gardeners and spotlight the connection between biological and cultural diversity that will connect us to our roots, especially our future farmers, and youth.

We are looking for someone to assist in the outreach to media connections, writing a press release, scheduling interviews with podcast channels.

Are you available to assist?

Thanks,

Elaine
