This project opens the viewer to the idea that exploitation and oppression are increasingly strengthening offsets of our current industrial and global food system. Specifically, the viewer will be taken on a tour of where the food system has gone wrong in Birmingham, Alabama by mapping food access and food sovereignty -- terms that will soon become familiar. Although points may get bleak, eventually the viewer will be introduced to all of the organizations working to bring control of land, livestock, water sources, seeds, and fish back to the local sphere, and ultimately tackling much broader social issues than solely hunger.
This project was created as an assignment in Professor Yuki Kato's CBL:Env/Food Justice Movements, SOCI-274-01 course.
