Arc of Justice traces the inspiring journey of New Communities Inc., defining the struggle for racial and economic justice among African Americans in southwest Georgia. Persevered as the largest black-owned farm in the country despite relentless opposition, New Communities lost its land in 1985 due to discriminatory lending practices by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but later prevailed in an historic lawsuit, staking its claim to new land and a new beginning in 2009.
