Redressing Slavery: Competing Perspectives
From Digital Content at TNS on February 19th, 2021
Prof. Brooks will map competing scholarly approaches or strategies for redressing the nation’s original sin. These approaches have yet to find expression in the public’s overly simplified discussion of slave redress, or “reparations” in common parlance. The talk will underscore the complexity of the matter and the intellectual work that needs to be done going forward.
Moderator: Darrick Hamilton, Henry Cohen Professor of Economics and Urban Policy.
