From the newly freed slaves of 1863 to today's black farmers and landowners, African Americans have fought to acquire and maintain land. They have encountered crippling obstacles along the way. In 1910, nearly one million black landowners in the United States owned a total of 15 million acres. By 1969, they held only 6 millions acres. In 1920, blacks owned 14% of the nations' farms. Today, there are less than 18,000 black farmers, representing less than 1% of all farms according to the NAACP National Voter Empowerment Program Office. http://www.NAACP.org

Where are we today?  Are we losing our land due to Taxes, Mortgages, Heir Property, Loans, Swindles, Lack of Education, Predatory Lending? Please join Host and Genealogist Antoinette Harrell for this upcoming discussion.
