    Black Farmers United with President, Gary R. Grant

    in Education

    Inventor and Farmer, Andrew Beard~Born in Alabama in 1849, Andrew Beard spent the first fifteen years enslaved on a small farm in Alabama. A year after he was emancipated, he got married and became a farmer in a small city outside of Birmingham. While in Birmingham, he was able to develop and champion his first invention (a plow). Three years later, he patented a second plow. These two inventions earned him almost $10,000, with which he began to invest in real estate.

    Mother's Milk - BLACK AGRICULTURAL SURVIVAL EXPO (B.A.S.E.)

    in Moms and Family

    Host:  Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad 


    Guests:  Shamir and Chaava Muhammad of The Black Agricultural Survival Expo (B.A.S.E.) 


    Shamir Muhammad has been growing and planting since the age of six. At thirteen, Shamir was introduced to horticulture by Jill Barrett of the Knox Parks Foundation. This would be the beginning of his formal training in agriculture and horticulture. 


    In October 2010, Shamir was introduced to Will Allen by way of Dr. Alim Muhammad through a workshop presentation. In that workshop, Shamir was reconnected to his first love, agriculture. He also knew at that moment that he not only wanted to be a farmer, but a scientist - a supreme god of agriculture. From that day in October 2010, Shamir works sleeps, and breathes agriculture. His sole purpose is to help The Hon. Min. Louis Farrakhan build an Agricultural Dynasty to end poverty and want. 


    Chaava Muhammad,  an event, promotions, and marketing coordinator of Dress The Garden, is a native of Brooklyn, NY. After taking the journey to Tuskegee, Alabama for the 18th anniversary of the Million Man March, Chaava teamed up with her husband Shamir, to form B.A.S.E. (Black Agriculture Survival Expo), which aims in helping the black nation recognize the importance of beginning to do for self. B.A.S.E. is a platform where black farmers, manufacturers, distributors, students, educators and consumers are able to meet to study, teach, train, learn, present ideas, products, and services that relate to agribusiness and ensure the survival and success of black national life.

    National Back Farmers Association Helps Homeowners Become Food Producers

    in Women

    When it comes to government funding to grow food on your property, the difference between those who get it and those who don't get it boils down to one word: Farming. An urban garden might produce food that the property owner eats, feeds a family and even sells to others, but as the founders of the National Association of Black Farmers explain, gardening is a hobby. Farming is a business, and for those homeowners who want to grow food, they can tap into the many financial resources available from the Deparment of Agriculture if only they refer to their food growing activities as "farming."  Empowerment begins with land ownership and the ability to provide ones own food , clothing, and shelter. Today we learn from Dr. John Wesley and Kara Boyd how to capitalize on the power we have in our hands right now, to become producers and sellers of food.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Finance

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama
