The idea of reparations for enslaved people and their descendants has been around since the Civil War’s end with the promise of “40 acres and mule.” Yet 157 years later it remains both a debt unpaid and an elusive hope. The recently released Interim Report from the California State Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans reopens the case for reparations. The SF African American Reparations Advisory Committee is examining local history and forging a path forward. Come learn more. What does reparations mean? Why here? What’s the latest?

Amos C. Brown, Third Baptist Church, and Vice Chair of CA State Task Force and member of San Francisco Advisory Committee.
