Good episode? Give it some love!
Between 1910 and 1997, African-American farmers lost about 90 percent of their land because the law does little to protect the passing down of land between generations. ProPublica reporter Lizzie Presser joins guest host John McCaa to tell the stories of families who are fighting to keep their property – and about how landowners can protect what they already own. Her recent reporting on the topic was co-published with The New Yorker.
