You Can Keep the Mule: Let’s Explore Reparations Models – UMDC MLK Day Webinar 2022

Reparations is a topic that stirs up a lot of opinions on what the United States owes the descendants of enslaved Africans. Does it owe land? Money? Does it owe anything at all? This panel discussion recorded on MLK Day 2022 explores the varying concepts of what is owed and what reparations might look like while discussing the Crafting Democratic Futures project. Housed in the U-M Center for Social Solutions, Crafting Democratic Futures aims to tackle the complex histories surrounding race by working with colleges and universities around the country to develop suggestions for research-informed, community-engaged racial reparations solutions.
