Episode 142: Radical Reparations

Under the banner of "40 acres and a mule," the movement for reparations for slavery and Jim Crow has gained momentum in recent years, with diverse efforts underway from big states like California and New York to smaller communities like Evanston, Illinois and Asheville, North Carolina. Marcus Hunter, author of the recently published "Radical Reparations: Healing the Soul of a Nation" explains to Taonga Leslie why economic compensation alone will not be sufficient to heal the scar of anti-Black racism and explains the six other forms of compensation that will be necessary to bring about true justice.

Host: Taonga Leslie, ACS Director of Policy and Program for Racial Justice

Guest: Marcus Hunter, Scott Waugh Endowed Chair in the Division of the Social Sciences, UCLA
