The Equitable Harvest Black Farmers Initiative at The Menus of Change University Research Collaborative (MCURC) Annual Meeting

October 3, 2023

During the MCURC Annual Meeting, the Equitable Harvest Black Farmer Initiative video was premiered. The video features the story of the Black Farmers Initiative as told by Stanford's Dr. Shirley J. Everett, Eric Montell, Diane Mavica, Farms to Grow, Inc's Elaine Smith, and Mr. William Scott, a farmer from California's Central Valley. The effort was led by a talented and committed group of creative professionals, and I had the privilege of serving as the creative lead. The team powerfully and respectfully presented this important story. #EquitableHarvest #StanfordBlackFarmerInitiative Photoshoot
