BLACK LAND LOSS: A HUMAN TRAGEDY
Black land loss in the United States refers to the loss of land ownership and rights by black people residing or farming in the United States. In 1862, the United States government passed the Homestead Act, which was intended to give land grants to individuals seeking land to farm. Black people were defrauded in this effort and lost tremendously most of the property acquired. Today the “land loss” continues.
The Black people were defrauded of their homes after the 2008 financial crisis. The tactics and home stealing continue today. Hosts, Dr. Janine James, Sister Dee Dee Conley, and the Sankofa Council of Milwaukee talk with Ms. Liz Johnson of the NAACP will reveal the forces that linked together this conspiratorial steal from us possible.
Is this practice one that is destined to return us to the plantation? We must create a strategy to inform, educate and stop the theft of the property owned by our forefathers and foremothers and passed on to us, their legacy. If you have lost property or know someone who has, you must join in the campaign to achieve justice for our defrauded homeowners. We must develop an action plan to counter this devastating practice.
