Dirt Rich Community Teach-In with

Drs. Marlo and Anthony Paul

On July 16th, the Black Agrarian Fund will hold our first Dirt Rich Community Teach-In with Drs. Marlo and Anthony Paul, Co-Founders of Eden Land Farm, an 116-acre organic medicinal herb and livestock farm, the NAPS Abundant Life Wellness Institute, and DP3 Herbs—a synergistic network of community health anchors in Black Belt Alabama. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted Black folk who have pre-existing medical conditions and lack access to holistic wellness institutions rooted in mind-body-spirit alignment—and who are ensnared in a web of structural racism.  In response to the precarious realities of Black folk in the U.S., Drs. Marlo and Anthony Paul will discuss their community health healing work in Black Belt Alabama. We are so appreciative of Drs. Paul. Their healing work is an extension of their spiritual practice; they embody the values of professional humility, interbeing, and knowledge democracy. In her TED Talk, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie warned of “The Danger of the Single Story.” There is resilience, mutual aid, self-determination, and cooperative economy in the Black Belt.
