We bring you a very important episode of Whetstone Audio Dispatch. Recently, host Stephen Satterfield spoke with C.W. Mallery, a Black farmer in El Paso, Colorado who has been the victim of racist terrorism on his own property. He and his wife Nicole, his farm and his animals have been experiencing various horrific forms of violence and anti-Black terrorism.
