Read more about their legacy in this interesting piece.

James shares, "When slaves were set free, forty acres and a mule were promised to the slaves on the plantation. The '40 acres' was the land on the plantation, while 'the mule' was the physical body that did the work. Back when Black men were slaves on forty acres of land, you could grow cotton, beans, corn, and wheat. Today, however, on forty acres of land, one could build a billion-dollar football stadium or basketball arena. The physical body code word, (the mule) represents eighty percent African American football and basketball players currently playing today. This book gives a generational consumption of the rebirth of the plantation."
