Ta-Nehisi Coates reignited a national conversation over reparations for African Americans with his 16,000-word cover story for the June issue of The Atlantic. The Case for Reparations argues that long after slavery ended, decades of racist policies and deliberate injustices – from Jim Crow to redlining – have continued to systematically wrong generations of African Americans, and “[u]ntil we reckon with our compounding moral debts, America will never be whole”. Join the Institute of Politics, the Center of Race, Politics, and Culture, the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, and the National Public Housing Museum as Ta-Nehisi Coates makes the case for reparations and why Chicago is central to his argument.
The UChicago Alumni Club of Washington, DC will be hosting a viewing party for the event, including submitting questions to the team in Chicago to be asked live.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm, the event will begin at 7 pm.
