ONLINE: In their groundbreaking work "From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the Twenty-First Century," William A. Darity Jr. and A. Kirsten Mullen provide the most comprehensive case to date for economic reparations for descendants of U.S. slavery. While the paramount purpose of a program of reparations would be to close the racial wealth gap between Black American descendants of U.S. slavery and white Americans, its implementation would have far-reaching impacts on racial inequities in education, housing, health, and the criminal legal system. Engaging with weekly readings and community experts, participants in this online course will explore strategies to repair the damage done by centuries of racism and White supremacy through reparations and restitution, restore healthy ecosystems where everyone can thrive, and reimagine systems founded on frameworks of equity and liberation. Participants will also actively engage with proven strategies for fostering transformational change. | Facilitated discussion.
