The Past, Present, and Future of Reparations in the United States

This year’s focus on reparations is long overdue. Contemporary racial subordination is the direct institutional progeny of American chattel slavery, and that legacy continues to deny the full promise of due process and equal protection for Black people in America. Imagining the possibilities—and limits—of the law in facilitating truth, reconciliation, and reparations is a difficult but necessary conversation. A series of panels will address the legal case for reparations.

**The actual date of the symposium is not yet set, but it will likely occur in February. Please check back in January for more information about the date, time, location, and participants in the symposium.**
