For more information and tickets, click here.
For the second half of Sound Bites, we bring you a panel I moderated at the First Baptist Church Family Life and Cultural Center in Salisbury, Maryland. It was called “Industrial CAFOs, Economics, and Public Health in Delmarva” and focused on the question, “How Safe is Your Water?” It was sponsored by Wicomico NAACP and Socially Responsible Agricultural Project. The impetus for the town hall was a proposed poultry operation in Wicomico County that would include up to thirteen chicken houses, each holding 30,000 chickens. The broiler operation would sit on top of the paleochannel, which is the public drinking water source for Salisbury residents. When this was first proposed citizens were left out of the County Council discussions and many were concerned about the health risks posed by these operations. What happened next was unique in the history of the eastern shore, as Black, Latino and White communities came together to convene this town meeting so their voices could be heard and could build a political movement. Go to steinershow.org to hear the full panel. Today, though, we are listening to the keynote address from that panel, which was delivered by Dr. John Ikerd, Professor Emeritus of Agricultural Economics at the University of Missouri.
