Freedom Means Feeding Ourselves …. HKS

Nakku Justine has become something of a viral sensation after she appeared on Nigerian news site Nigeriancamera.net.

The 25-year-old operates her own lucrative 6 acre farm in Nigeria producing dairy, cabbage, cereals, carrots and poultry.

Images of Justine working the land were swiftly shared on social media, with many marveling at the sight of a young, black woman in a field that skews older and male.

Here in America, despite blacks’ historical relationship with agriculture they have been largely shut out of the farming industry due in part to the denial of USDA loans.

African Americans currently account for just 2% of the nation’s farmers — a number that has declined from 14% in 1920. #BlackFarming #thestruggleizforland

    So incredibly proud of this beautiful young woman. This is someone who is living her dream, is working hard, and is creating not only a tangible product, but is giving a gift to her people by laying a blueprint and setting an example to other young men and women around her.
