New Funding to Support Spelman College to Support Educational Initiatives Focused on Reparations

ATLANTA (February 25, 2021) While Congress continues to mull over the decades-old “Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans Act (HB-40),” which has been introduced in legislative sessions since 1989, Spelman College students and faculty members are researching solutions to address the generational impact of the transatlantic slave trade.

Through a collaboration between the Reparations Project and Spelman’s Social Justice Program, a new cohort of Quarterman & Keller Social Justice Scholars will be working on research projects focused on land ownership and racial injustice tied to America’s legacy of slavery.
