The Dream & The Struggle, Part 3: What would Reparations look like? at Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork

May 14, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

The Dream & The Struggle is a three-part series examining Ta-Nehisi Coates’ writings: “Between the World & Me” and “A Case for Reparations.”

Co=sponsored by Temple Adas Israel, UU Congregation of the South Fork, and Canio’s Cultural Cafe.

Join us for a community discussion on what Reparations might look like on a local and national level. All are welcome.

Rep. John Conyers has introduced HR40 every year since 1997. HR40 would “acknowledge the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery, subsequently de jure and de facto racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans, to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies, and for other purposes.”
