Description

The State reveals the David-and-Goliath struggle between two of the nation's wealthiest men and the tiny community of African-American residents who struggle to stop those businessmen from developing their ancestral home. During the past decade textile billionaire Roger Milliken and wood-products magnate E. Craig Wall Jr. have quietly bought nearly all of Sandy Island's developable high ground. (Feb. 19, 1995)
