Reparations — Beyond Acres and the Mule Unerased | Black Women Speak

    • History

How can you measure the damage from four centuries of bondage and soul pillage? What is the price tag on the sustained striping of our agency and possibilities from one generation to the next? Blacklisting. Redlining. Whitewashing. 
This episode includes storytelling on the human toll, beginning with Callie House, an emancipated washer woman who launched the 20th century reparations movement. We will also hear from advocates with the National African American Reparations Commission which is leading the way to institute federal reparations laws.
