Program Looks to Save Black Agriculture

The U.S. Agriculture Department is praising a pilot project launched by the Roanoke Electrical Cooperative-Roanoke Center in Ahoskie, North Carolina, that will help Black landowners of the South maintain their property. Of the 229 million acres of privately owned southern forest, about 16 million are owned by Blacks and minorities.  (Photo: AP Photo/Bruce Smith)
