As Black History Month draws to a close, we'd like to share this intimate portrait of African American farmers.

Black farmers in the United States have faced decades of prejudice, yet continue to work the land, even as they lose their property at 1,000 acres a day. John Ficara spent years documenting the experiences of black farmers, whose entire way of life may someday be nothing more than a distant echo. 14:00 DURATION.
