Episode 35: The Case for Reparations in the United States

Dr. Marcus Hunter joins Broken Law to talk with Peggy Li about why reparations are needed in the United States and how the movement for reparations works with and alongside the movement for Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (TRHT) in this country. This episode is a great follow-up to Episode 9's introduction to TRHT. Dr. Hunter and Peggy address common misunderstandings about reparations, precedent for reparations in the U.S. and beyond, and examples of states and communities that are pursuing reparations locally. Their discussion concludes with how listeners can engage in the movement for reparations and TRHT.
