This Sat @ 7:30pm SMAART will explore the risks and rewards of land ownership, real estate and property.
In 1865 U.S. General William Sherman, made the historic promise of 40 acres of land and a mule to newly freed slaves (a token form of reparations). More than a 100 years later, blacks are still struggling to own land and the homes they live in.
So we're posing the question, in 2017 is 40 acres still necessary for blacks to feel secure financially?
A special presentation will be delivered by our guest speaker, young real estate guru, Zewuze Ladzekpo ( Z for short ) of Prestige Fortune Properties.
