Landscaped Legacies: Images of a California Pig Farmer

Nomadic Press

2926 Foothill Blvd #1, Oakland, California 94601

Nomadic Press writes, “Join Dr. Gail Myers, cultural anthropologist, as she shares images from her work and those of photographer Michael Santiago to provide insight into the aesthetic preferences of Black farmers and ranchers. These images tell stories of cultural patterns of land use and designs and of cultural continuities.

Stacks of old tires, abandoned cars, a Winnebago, an old ladder just strewn about, rusty file cabinets, and messes of old boards—these assemblages of things represent legacy landscapes of African patterns and designs while revealing an underlying worldview and system of thought.

These legacy bricolages of things and ideas have transcended time and space. Historically black farmers utilized their farm landscapes for recycling, reusing, and preserving materials within African patterns and designs.

Take part in a lively discussion about Black farmer’s traditional landscape use and design. See how the images capture examples of the swept yards tradition coming from West Africa thousands of years ago being used today in Southern California.

Immediately following the discussion, attendees are invited to walk over to Austin Square Park (one block away), where an Earth Day cleanup will be taking place from 1–3:00 p.m. Fruit trees will be available to plant along the banks of Sausal Creek.
