BTR News: Amazon Wants To Deprive Descendants Of Victims Of Slavery Of Their Land

Amazon, one of the largest companies in the world is reported to be involved in a plan to take the land of descendants of enslaved Africans who purchased the land in the years after emancipation from slavery brought about by the Civil War.

The Carver Road community in Virginia is mostly made up of elderly men and women who have owned the land for generations and all that can change if the Prince William County Board of Supervisors allows this to happen.

Afro-Americans own less than 3% of land in the United States.
