From the venue:

Join us for a screening of Dirt and Deeds: In Mississippi, a film about the role farmers of African descent played in the Civil Rights movement by providing food, shelter, and leveraging land as collateral to help activists.

The film will be followed by a panel featuring Dr. Doris Derby, a co-producer of the film, local farmer and organizer Bobby Wilson of Metro Atlanta Urban Farms, and Chris Norman of the Land Bank Authority in Atlanta.

Tickets for the film are available for a $10 suggested donation to Historic Westside Gardens, who is leading a charge to install 100 food producing gardens in Atlanta next year.
