An Argument For Reparations

You can draw a straight line from income inequality back to Jim Crow laws and slavery. Therefore, there’s an argument to be made for a monetary path toward addressing those wrongs. William A. Darity Jr., Samuel DuBois Cook Distinguished Professor of Public Policy at Duke University, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about his case for compensation to heal centuries of harm. His book, co-written with A. Kirsten Mullen, is called “From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans In the Twenty-First Century.”
