An Update on the Journey to Reparations Series

The concept of reparations dates back three centuries in the United States. Reparations have impacted several marginalized, disenfranchised, and enslaved minorities nationally and internationally. To understand and analyze the dynamic history of this restorative and equitable concept, The Wright Museum has launched a research initiative that will include educational lectures, discussions, and book reviews with activists, historians, educators, and legislators that play an active role in the reparations movement.

Please stay tuned for upcoming live and virtual discussions centered on the history and evolution of reparations!

The following books will be reviewed: 

  • Should America Pay: Slavery and the Raging Debate on Reparations by Dr. Raymond Winbush, (2003); 
  • The Debt: What America Owes to Blacks by Randall Robinson, (2001); 
  • From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the 21st Century by William Darity and Kirsten Mullen, (2020).
