Karen Washington: Fighting for Food Justice

​Morgan welcomes farmer and community gardener Karen Washington, who has spent decades working to bring New Yorkers fresh, locally grown food. She began by working with neighborhoods in her home, the Bronx, to turn empty lots into community gardens. In 2014, she co-founded Rise and Root Farm in Chester, New York. By engaging communities through farming, her farm is committed to food justice: “increasing the number of people growing and eating good food.”

In this first station-wide Orgy in WHRB's recent memory, we reviewed 1969's Apollo 11 landing, Woodstock Music Festival, Harvard Strike, Nixon’s inauguration, Vietnam Moratorium, and other pivotal history-defining moments through hundreds of popular songs, speeches, and recorded broadcasts, including materials from Harvard’s own archives. If you missed the Orgy, we're sharing our 12 produced montages here!
