40 Acres and a Lie: Past & Present

Join us in conversation with Alexia Fernández Campbell and April Simpson on their investigative series “40 Acres and a Lie.” This project reveals how over a thousand enslaved people in Georgia and South Carolina were given land by the federal government, only to have it taken away after the Civil War. We’ll explore the implications of broken economic promises of repair, discuss just vs. unjust debts, and how the past ripples into the present.
