Ward Jordan's insight:

The Last American Plantation is an upcoming documentary by Arts, Trade & Lifestyle Media Group, Inc about the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and it's widely known discriminatory practices towards minority farmers and employees, and being referred to as the "Last Plantation" because of its discriminating practices.   Featured in the film are Mr. Lawrence Lucas, President of USDA Coalition of Minority Employees and Ms. Tanya Ward Jordan, President of The Coalition For Change, Inc. (C4C).


A recent quote published in the "Final Call" newspaper states that, "USDA actively worked against the economic interests of Black farmers. The USDA's loan agencies, such as the Farmer's Home Administration (FHA), denied Black farmers ownership and operating loans, disaster relief and other aid."
And according to historian Pete Daniel, the greatest reduction of Black farmers came in the decades of the civil rights movement. Between 1940 and 1974, the number of Black farmers fell from 681,790 to just 45,594—a drop of 93 percent.


The upcoming documentary, "The Last American Plantation," will interview the farmers, employees, national activist and journalist that are working closely to expose this well kept secret of a federal government form of modern day racism that continues to go to this very day of 2013.
