For Land's Sake

Abstract:
Timothy Pigford of Bladen County has been in the forefront of a legal struggle against the Farmers Home Administration. His suit charges that the agency discriminated against black farmers by denying loans or making loan acquisitions more difficult than for whites. Now, after two decades, the government must choose between settling out of court or facing a $3 billion class action suit.
