Reparations as Restorative Justice Part 1
In this episode, Guy Emerson Mount, Caine Jordan, and David Johnson discuss the idea of reparations and the Reparations Movement in the global African Diaspora with Hettie V. Williams. These scholars reframe the notion of justice “turning the idea on its head” and declare that monetary compensation for the injury of slavery, and racism more generally, can only be understood as a restorative on-going process or praxis. In other words, there is no amount of monetary compensation that can repair the harm that has been done to Black and African American communities worldwide. This is a two-part series.
