Losing Ground (Clip) | VICE on SHOWTIME

In the years after the Civil War, African-Americans were able to acquire land and by 1910, they held an estimated 16 million acres. After decades of legal discrimination and violence, the ownership mostly vanished. But for families who have retained this property, many have to navigate a murky kind of ownership shared among many family members with no safeguards against exploitation by developers.

VICE correspondent Alzo Slade explores the vulnerability many black landowners face as they try to retain their piece of the American dream.
