A woman was driven off her land by a racist mob. 8 decades later, she owns it again.

In 1939, when Opal Lee was just 12, her family moved into a house that stood in an all-White neighborhood. They had lived at the home for just five days when a mob showed up and “tore it asunder.” More than eight decades later, she owns the land again. Steve Hartman has her story in “On the Road.”
