Dr. Gregory Acevedo is working to change that...one student at a time.

America’s agricultural and food systems are intertwined with the country’s long history of slavery and racism. Today, black Americans account for less than two percent of farmers nationwide, and that small percentage has had to deal with discrimination, financial strain, and displacement.

Fordham Conversations guest host is David Goodwin, Assistant Director of the Center on Religion and Culture. He leads a conversation between Dr. Rufus Burnett, Jr. and Leah Penniman. Dr. Burnett is an assistant professor of theology at Fordham University. Leah Penniman is the co-director and farm manager of Soul Fire Farm, an Afro-Indigenous Center Community Farm. She is also a 2019 recipient of the James Beard Foundation Leadership Award. In this first part of our two-part conversation, we’ll hear about the history of the black agricultural experience, the legal struggles for debt relief for black farmers, and the spirituality of working with the Earth.

Just when we thought the pandemic was almost over a new delta variant strain of covid is causing infections and hospitalizations to climb. As a result, some leaders, lawmakers, and businesses are mandating that every adult be vaccinated. But that is not sitting well with the unvaccinated residents who have questions and concerns.

Fordham University Political Science Professor Nicholas Tampio joins Fordham Conversations host Robin Bobbie Shannon to discuss why he believes a mask mandate could cause a backlash. He co-wrote The Washington Post article "Vaccine mandates will backfire. People will resist even more."
