OUR PURPOSE

The Black Belt Justice Center (BBJC) is a legal and advocacy nonprofit organization that serves African American farmers, landowners, and communities in the Black Belt region in efforts to retain and increase landownership; to create sustainable land-based cooperatives and entrepreneurial businesses; and to ensure intergenerational and community wealth.

In 1910, African Americans collectively owned over 15 million acres of rural land, compared to current figures of less than 3 million acres.
