Karen Lee from UAPB explains more about the 65th annual Rural Life Conference

The 65th annual Rural Life Conference of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff School of Agriculture, Fisheries and Human Science will take place March 14 and 15 HPER Complex on campus.

On March 14, there will be a screening of the film Gaining Ground, the Fight for Black Land which will take place at the S.J. Parker 1890 Extension Complex in the S.A. Haley Auditorium.

The conference itself starts with registration at 7:30 a.m. and Karen Lee from UAPB explains what it will offer.

Lee was a guest on the Oldies 1013 Morning Show where Greg Horne told her she had mentioned about black people losing their land. He said he keeps hearing about how big financial institutions and individuals are buying farm land all over the country and asked her how much of that is going n in the Deltaplex.

Horne said he was glad to see that there have been things done because it would be much better if people own their own land.
