Ta-Nehisi Coates: The Case for Reparations

The Case for ReparationsJune 2, 2014 – Segment 2

In the cover story for the June issue of The Atlantic, essayist Ta-Nehisi Coates makes “The Case for Reparations.” Coates argues that Black Americans as a group – because of slavery, segregation, and Federal housing policy – have been prevented from building inter-generational wealth.

We begin the show with my interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates about his article, which has reignited a national discussion on the topic of reparations.
