Monday, June 1, 2020 - Joining us today to reflect on the current racial unrest is Joseph McNeil, Jr. of Bismarck, a Standing Rock Sioux tribal member and the son of Joseph McNeil, Sr., one of the Greensboro Four; a group of African American college students who sat down at a segregated Woolworth's lunch counter to challenge the store's policy of denying service to non-white customers. ~~~ Commentary on our history of racial unrest from Mark Trahant. ~~~ ND Farmers Markets and Growers Association  has been developing “best practices” recommendations as the season for selling is about to get underway in the midst of the pandemic. Joining us is Holly Rose Mawby, the association’s executive director. She’s also the director of the Entrepreneurial Center for Horticulture at Dakota College at Bottineau, and she does some growing herself.
