About Leah Penniman

Portrait of Leah Penniman

Portrait by Robert Shetterly courtesy of Americans Who Tell the Truth.

Leah Penniman

Farmer, Educator, Food Justice Activist : b. 1980

"Our ancestral grandmothers braided seeds and promise into their hair before being forced into the bowels of transatlantic ships. As they plaited their okra, cowpea, millet and black rice into tight cornrows, they affirmed their hope in a future on soil. They whispered to us, their descendents: “The road may be rough, but we will never give up on you."
