MLive: Community engagement a major force behind U-M reparations project for Black and Native communities

A team of experts based out of the University of Michigan are working to ensure a “just future” for Black and Native communities in the form of reparations.

The University of Michigan Center for Social Solutions is almost a year into research for the project “Crafting Democratic Futures: Situating Colleges and Universities in Community-based Reparations Solutions.” The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded a $5M grant to the center and nine institutional partners last year as part of the Foundation’s ‘Just Futures’ initiative.
