Our guests this evening will be reviewing the state of affairs for black farmers at the hands of the USDA.  Our guests bring a wealth of knowledge and an in depth perspective on this issue.  With no support whatsoever from the NAACP, or even (BIG) Blacks in Government, the farmers continue to experience discrimination within the USDA.  In fact, NAACP has in particular turned their backs on the black farmers and will not even acknowledge the issues they face in the USDA.
