Report shows formerly enslaved people were ousted from land

Season 2024 Episode 172 | 6m 33s

After the Civil War, the federal government’s pledge of 40 acres and a mule to the formerly enslaved has been known as a broken promise. But a new report reveals that not only did the government grant land to hundreds of people, it also took that land back and returned it to white southerners. Amna Nawaz discussed more with Alexia Fernández Campbell of the Center for Public Integrity.
