One group is standing up for land they say was taken from them. Various leaders and residents from around the state met tonight for a black land loss forum hosted by the NCAAP. Those who are upset say land is being sold or taken out from under elderly people and many black families by the government.
The meeting was a chance for leaders to educate those affected and get the word out. "Too many people are being hurt. Old people are being evicted from their homes. We're seeing bogus surveys being taken. We're seeing the good old boy network work in many areas. The people are hurting and as a result of that we think something must be done." says Edward Vaughn, NCAAP State President.
