I was glad to see that the Black Lives Matter movement has slavery reparation on the agenda.
There is an article, “What is Owed” by Nikole Hannah-Jones, a staff writer for the New York Times that is a must read on the subject. She lays out the history of our treatment of Black people from slavery to the present and makes a strong case for reparations that should be made.
Hopefully in November, we can remind our leaders this is essential and long overdue. In acknowledging this necessity, those of us who are white can begin the healing process.
