Film Festival: I’m Just a Layman

September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

I‘m Just a Layman chronicles the injustices of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, also known as ‘the last plantation,’ and the lived experiences of Black farmers who chose to fight against discrimination. Between 1997 and 1999, fifteen farmers appeared before the USDA and the Department of Justice and won their case administratively. This film brings the stories of nine of these farmers and families out in the open.

Discussant: Filmmaker Shoun Hill
