Participants in a producers' round table held last month at Virginia State University listened as U.S. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture Jewel Bronaugh discussed details of the recently approved COVID-19 relief bill. A provision sponsored by Sen. Raphael Warnock of Georgia includes billions of dollars in debt relief for the nation's Black farmers, who have long experienced discrimination in USDA programs.
