What Is Black Flour? A History Lesson...

Black Flour is an homage to the first population of free and enslaved Blacks in the United States that made a living as Millers and Millwrights, beginning an economic revolution in America. 

As history has it, black millers generally levied 20% of the finished product to local farmers as payment for their work. Them having intimate control over this area of production (knowledge of weights, measures, and mathematics), the weight was not always equal to the tax. This “short-weighting” in turn allowed the millers to provide for themselves, their families, and create an underground economy that was paramount to the prospering of the free black community in rural areas.
