Event Description

::: “Reparations: The Debt That Is Owed” :::
An OUR COMMON GROUND Reparations Discussion Series
Episode #2: “Reparations: The Paradigm Shift”
Guest: Dr. Rutledge M. Dennis, Sociologist and Anthropologist
“The key point is there is a debt that has to be paid. … The nation has an obligation, has a debt that needs to be paid.”
Advocates and experts argue that on-going systemic racism has placed Black Americans at a disadvantage in everything from obtaining an education to being paid fair wages, purchasing homes, starting businesses, and passing down generational wealth — all components needed to achieve robust economic health.
Some advocates and experts say reparations are the answer. So what exactly is owed?
Tonight, we examine the demand for reparations through many eras of Black Struggle history:  with Dr. Rutledge M. Dennis. What are the remnants of the impact of an enslaved people, held bound in economic and social oppression for hundreds of years, left to for hundred more to fight its ghosts. What did they survive ? More importantly, what made them thrive and where are the broken places. What cost did they pay? What costs do their descendants pay?
