Episode 2: Developing Paths to Equity

October 13, 2021, 10-11:15am PDT

African-American land ownership peaked in 1910 at 15 million acres and then fell dramatically from that point, with land loss often due to heirs’ property complications. It is estimated that today there are some 3.5 million acres of heirs’ property in the US South, with an assessed value of $28 billion. A number of organizations are coming together to push for legislative policies, legal reforms and programs that will help heirs’ property owners to secure and retain their land rights, improve forest management, increase income, and keep forests as forests.
