According to CNBC, this small group’s total land holdings are about 9 million acres.

In the report “Who Owns the Land,” the United States Department of Agriculture disclosed all of Black America only owns just under 8 million acres. In fact, it was further explained that African Americans own less than one percent of U.S. rural land, worth a mere 14 billion dollars. While combined, white American families privately own over 98 percent of U.S. land, amounting to 856 million acres, with a total worth of over a trillion dollars.
