SOAP's ASk about it - Webseries

SOAP's Ask About It - WebSeries targets the Social Norm and provides a lens for those who live outside the pre-visualized, invisible boundaries that have been set in place. AAI segments are uncut and uncensored, yet create a safe space for all who are connected -  to experience one’s life through their perspective(s), while confronting questions and notions that many don’t have the courage to ask or acknowledge. 

We strive to emphasize the fluidity, diversity, & unity within urban communities globally, starting in our own N.C. backyards.  


Herban soapbox

Herban SOAPbox is a collective lecture series, hosted by SOAP Worldwide Inc. & Herban Garden, that creates a platform for people of color to reflect on food cultivation. Farmers and food activists in the Triangle join us to provide insight into the historical and cultural significance of farming in communities of color.

Herban SOAPbox  featured local artists (Tha Materials + Jeghettos Troupe) gardening organizations (Hope Gardens + Herban Garden) and community partners (chef Abbi Jai + Vegan Flava) who share their passion for art, food, and organizing. This event series was presented every Friday in February from 6:00pm to 8:00pm @ the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

We welcomed special guests Kamal Bell (educator, activist, and owner of Sankofa Farms), Jason Brown (UNC alum, former NFL player, and owner of First Fruit Farms), and we conclude the series with a catered (chef Abbi Jai) screening of the food justice film Can You Dig This, executive produced by singer song-writer John Legend. Surrounding community members and food justice supporters joined us for Herban SOAPbox, as we put food and farming at the forefront of the community consciousness.
