    40 acres and mule - the promise made to formerly enslaved Africans by General Sherman in 1865, was quickly broken. It is estimated that the land distributed and then clawed back from 40,000 freed slaves would be worth $640 billion today. By 1910, despite many extreme obstacles, 925,000 African Americans managed to acquire over 1 million farms, comprising 16-19 million acres of land, about 14% of all farms in 1910. As of 2017 there were approximately 45,500 framers owning .52% of the American farmland. The loss was due to not only discriminatory practices by the US Department of Agriculture, industrialization and the Great migration, but the problem of no inheritance structures in place for black landowners, leading to massive fractionalization and loss of property.

    Nationally, median African American household wealth decreased 75% to $1700 while white household wealth increased 14% to $116,800 between 1983 and 2013. A 2017 report found the median net worth for non-immigrant African American households in the Boston region was $8 US but for whites it was $247,500. Numerous studies link this gap in economic growth to land ownership. Ownership of property is, and has historically been, a recognized financial building block for families. In 2017 racial homeownership gap was 79.1% of white Americans owned a home versus 41.8% of African Americans. General housing and lending discrimination through restrictive covenants, redlining and other lending practices facilitated this gap.

    Our three esteemed panelists discuss local, state and federal legislative efforts to address the loss of property and the attendant loss of financial security and progress, suffered by African American citizens.
