Roots of the Soil: Legal and Policy Issues in Succession Planning for Socially Disadvantaged Farm Families

During this webinar, staff members from the Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers Policy Research Center will be discussing the public policies surrounding access to credit and heirs property, and will provide an update on the work of the Policy Research Center leading up to the 2023 Farm Bill. In addition, a farmer from Kentucky will share his first-hand experience with these issues.

The Policy Research Center, created in the 2014 Farm Bill and located at Alcorn State University, specializes in policy research impacting socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. Through collaboration with universities and community-based organizations inside and outside the land grant community, the Policy Research Center makes policy recommendations that will improve the success of socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers.

Our Presenters:

Jim Coleman is a successful businessman, author, and fourth-generation farmer. Coleman Crest Farm near Lexington, Kentucky was originally purchased by Jim’s great grandfather in 1888, and is one of Kentucky’s oldest African American owned farms. The farm was purchased by Jim and his wife Cathy in 2001. Cathy passed away this past April after a battle with breast cancer. Now Jim is dedicating the restoration of the historical Coleman Crest farm in her honor. He plans to set up programs to teach young minority men and women how to farm and produce financial freedom.

Eloris Speight joined Alcorn State University in March 2016 as Director of the Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers (SDFR) Policy Research Center. In this capacity she leads the Policy Center in conducting research on policy impacting socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers and making policy recommendations that will improve the success of SDFR. The Policy Center played a key role in advocating for items that are included in the 2018 Farm Bill, which benefit SDFR and the 1890 community.

April Love joined Alcorn State University in August 2020 as a Policy Analyst with the Socially Disadvantaged Farmers and Ranchers (SDFR) Policy Research Center. In this position she aids the Policy Center in reviewing agricultural policies and regulations to determine the impact on socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers and assists in making policy recommendations that will improve the success of SDFR. In addition to her position as a Policy Analyst, Ms. Love is a licensed attorney in the State of Louisiana.
