We can learn a lot from bees and even more from the overlooked history of Black beekeeping. Tune in for this insightful conversation with Cameron Redford the founder of The Black Hives Matter Project on the historic erasure of black beekeeping. We will also be speaking with Daphne Williams, the Chief Growth Officer of Sweet Beginning, a Chicago-based social enterprise that provides formerly incarcerated individuals with employment skills through beekeeping in one of Chicago's most under resourced communities.
This webinar is being hosted in collaboration with Art of Citizenry, Chicago Fair Trade & NYC Fair Trade Coalition. Register here.
