40 acres and a mule,’ given that there were 4 to 5 million slaves at the end of the Civil War — and they were all promised 40 acres and a mule for every family of four — if you did the math today, it would be trillions of dollars.” She added that any amount lower than $100 billion would be “an insult.”
