"40 acres and a mule" refers to a promise made in 1865 by the United States government to those liberated Blacks recently held as slaves, to wit, they would be set up in a fashion similar to that which, in the main, white people had been provisioned upon commencing life in North America. What does Black lives matter as a refrain if it doesn't mean equality of access (along with all other lives) to this planet, this earth?

Listen to Oscar Brown's retelling of the story here: then come along on a free walking tour which, by way of surveying San Francisco social movement history and hypothesizing land access as the unifying principle with all liberation movements, proposes a way forward in getting the value of those 40 acres into the lives of not only all Blacks, but all people.
