Description

Slater King, a black activist and real estate broker, presents his idea to create a land trust, privately organized as a non-profit entity, as a means of encouraging poor blacks and whites to leave overpopulated urban areas to become farmers, and to help even the odds of those who are struggling to hold onto their land. Gar Alperovitz, Robert Choate, Don Devereux, Eleanor Eaton, and Robert Swann join Center fellows in the discussion. Sept. 1968.
