Jackson Clemmons and Lydia Clemmons

Jackson Clemmons and Lydia Clemmons: Making A Way Out of No Way: 100 Years of African-American Family Storytelling

In addition to their medical careers, Jack and Lydia Clemmons pursued lives as farmers, artists, and are the parents of five children and 13 grandchildren. The Clemmons are also gifted storytellers who blend gentle humor and humility with vivid descriptions of people, places and events. Their stories shines a personal light on African-American history and a culture of resilience and triumph. In the face of the dramatic loss of 93% of African-American owned land assets nation-wide over the course of their lifetimes, the couple have owned and maintained the Clemmons Family Farm for nearly 60 years. A vital land and cultural heritage asset, the 148-acre farm with six beautiful historic buildings is one of just 0.4 percent of farms in the U.S. that are still African-American owned. 

The series talks are springboards to provoke meaningful conversations, and will be guided by Dr. Wanda Heading-Grant as moderator. This third annual speakers’ series is free and open to the public at the historic Barn House on the Clemmons Family Farm in Charlotte, VT. Advance registration is required and a donation is welcome.
