032: Black Cotton with Julius Tillery
On this episode of UNGENTRIFIED, I am joined by Julius Tillery (@blackcotton.us), one of the youngest Black farmers in the country and owner of Black Cotton, a cotton farm based in North Carolina . We talk about what Black farmers go through within the industry, our community’s history with cotton farming, and whether or not “Queen Sugar” gets it right about the lives of Black farmers. Listen and give us your opinion!
