Preserving Our Land.

Telling our story.

We are a 501 (c)(3) family run non-profit dedicated to restoring and preserving our 116 acres of Black-stewarded ancestral land outside of Hazlehurst, Mississippi. Handy Heights is a case for reparations.

Why we need help…

We, as a family, would like to return Handy Heights to its former glory and continue to use the land as a space for healing, safety, and resources for Black, Indigenous, and people of color in the community and beyond. We have a small pecan orchard and hope to begin farming our pecans. We also would like to create an archival space on the land to protect and preserve our legacy. Find out more…
