The Color of Food: Stories of Race, Resilience, and Farming


Despite government and corporate exploitation, many different minority races and cultures have cultivated a rich history in sustainable agriculture. Listen how NAFTA has destroyed 1.3 million family farms in Mexico, how racial discrimination has influenced land allocations to blacks since the Civil War, and the Alien Lands Act took family farms from Asians in America. Just as bad has been the economic and resource restrictions on Native Americans that exist to this day. However, the history of minorities in agricultural is rich and it is important. Many new associations are forming and coordinating to make certain minorities continue to be leading participants in sustainable agriculture. It’s important we understand the relationship between land, food, and cultures.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
