Lillian “Ebonie” Alexander is the executive director of the Black Family Land Trust. The BFLT defines the African American Land Ethic as blending the concepts of phenomenology, Leopold’s land ethic, and cultural competence to describe African Americans’ historical relationship with the land and how that relationship dictates the value placed on land ownership in the United States, particularly in the rural south.
