Black Womxn Farmers Fight the Pandemic With a Food Revolution

My latest for the South Seattle Emerald. It was such an honor to photograph and write about Seattle sisters Nyema Clark and Shanelle Donaldson farming for Black health and liberation. In a time of pandemic when Black lives are being ravaged because of centuries of racism, Shanelle’s and Nyema’s food/environmental justice work is more critical than ever. This piece continues a story series I started last summer on Womxn and Nonbinary Farmers of Color in Washington State. The series is supported by NW Journalists of Color and the Facebook COVID-19 Journalism Project.
