American Black Farmers Project

John Ficara‘s American Black Farmers Project is a remarkable body of work.

Through his photographs we feel their dignity, grace, humor and spirit as they battle the onslaught of globalization, changing agricultural technology, and discriminatory lending practices by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

This is a story about losing a way of life, a loss of tradition for many families and indignities still often experienced by African Americans today.
