Arc of Justice (2016)
- Summaries (1)
Arc of Justice traces the remarkable story of New Communities, Inc. (NCI), an inspiration for hundreds of community land trusts that have been created across the USA and around the globe. NCI was created in 1969 by leaders of the Civil Rights Movement in southwest Georgia to help secure economic independence for African American families. For fifteen years, NCI cooperatively farmed nearly 6000 acres of land in the face of attacks by local racists and refusals by federal agencies to provide grants or loans. Its land was lost to foreclosure in 1985, but 25 years later NCI was given new life as a result of a successful class action lawsuit brought by hundreds of African American farmers against the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
