Harvesting Teff, Ethiopia

A man threshes stalks of teff as it is harvested in this region of Ethiopia where this durable grain thrived in spite of the 1984 drought. 

Ozier Muhammad Photojournalist

In late October of 1984 Dennis Bell, Josh Friedman and I went to the Sahel region of Africa to do a series of reports for Newsday on the condition of that area, 10 years after a devastating drought claimed the lives of thousands across that region in the mid 1970s.
