Event Details

Join us this month in highlighting black families and leaders, their legacy, contributions, and historical moments in cooperative economics history! 

During this webinar, we will journey through cooperative economics history and hear from some of the first families to live on the Federation’s Land in Epes. These families were at the forefront of envisioning a new economy that would value black farmers, landowners.

Black families are critical pieces of Cooperative history through their sacrifice to promote what was a new concept. We acknowledge this year’s black history month theme, The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity declared by the Association of the Study of African American Life and History.

As we journey through the cooperative history through this webinar, we will hear from those who were at the forefront of envisioning a new economy that would value black farmers, landowners; entrusting that vision to bring to life a pathway for self-supporting communities. The federation believes true generational healing and building within the black community begins with a representation and acknowledgment of our leaders and pioneers. The legacy of the member-owner framework and community building has primarily been told through documenting the families and community members involved in heading cooperatives through the southern U.S Regions.
