The concept of land trusts was first developed in 1969 by New Communities Inc., a collective farm organized by a group of Black families in Albany, Georgia in response to being evicted from their homes for participating in civil rights protests. New Communities Inc. continues to be the model for other land trusts around the world.
The Sugarhill Community Land Trust was created to combat the impacts of gentrification in Sugarhill and other historic Black neighborhoods in Tucson.
