Herban SOAPbox is a lecture series that creates a platform for people of color to reflect on food cultivation. Farmers and food activists in the Triangle join us to provide insight into the historical and cultural significance of farming in communities of color. Herban SOAPbox will also feature local musicians, gardening organizations, and community partners who will share their passion for art, food, and organizing. All events will take place during the last three Fridays in February from 6:00pm to 8:00pmin the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. On Friday, February 10th we welcome Kamal Bell, educator, activist, and owner of Sankofa Farms. On Friday, February 17th we welcome Jason Brown, a UNC alum, former NFL player, and owner of First Fruit Farms. On Friday, February 24th we conclude the series with a catered screening of the food justice film Can You Dig This, executive produced by singer song-writer John Legend. Immediately following the film we will raffle off prizes to those who have joined us throughout the duration of the series. Join us for Herban SOAPbox, as we put food and farming at the forefront of the community consciousness.
