About this Event
A family of sugar-cane farmers in Louisiana worked the same land for generations and ultimately they began to realize that racism was looming over their hard labor and that they may soon become dispossessed of their land. They couldn’t figure out what was happening until one day a fateful call reached the family known as The Provosts, that called changed their lives and started them on a path to fight dispossession and revealed the plight of Black farmers everywhere. We learn the story of June and Angie Provost with an understanding of what is described as “echoes in a past case that led to the largest civil rights settlement in American history.” We reflect on this history in an important dialogue with June and Angie Provost.
