On October 28, 2022, more than one-hundred Black farmers, agribusiness and community leaders from across the state of Georgia gathered in Macon, Georgia at the Tubman Museum for the Inaugural Black Farmers Ball. The free evening included dinner, awards, special presentations, and remarks to farmers on issues and solutions affecting their community and livelihood.
U. S. Congressman David Scott, past Chair House Agriculture Committee, delivered his remarks via video. Dr. Charlene Gilbert, who produced and directed the PBS documentary, Homecoming: sometimes I am haunted by memories or red clay and dirt, also addressed the attendees about the importance of saving farms.
The 2023 Black Farmers Ball will be an evening of celebration to honor Black farmers from across the state of Georgia for their contributions to the agriculture industry. Join us at
