 Birthed from the adage “forty acres and a mule” 4ourty is a name that captures both past and present. We do know how to spell the number 40. However, our 4ourty was created…For Our Unity. The unfulfilled promise of our forty acres may leave a feeling of anger for some but, for us it is a reminder of a larger promise. Today we understand that no one will give us our forty acres or our mule but, here at 4ourty we believe that we can give it to ourselves.

Through unity, economic empowerment, and support of one another we will make Ownership the New Black!
