TAMPA, Fla. — Last week we brought you an in-depth report about Black farmer’s complaints of racism and a history of discriminatory practices in the agriculture industry. This week, we’re focusing on the future of Black farming in our area.
ABC Action News in-depth reporter Anthony Hill spoke with young, Black farmers and he’s also digging deeper to find out what’s being done to give the next generation of Black farmers the tools they need to excel.
