Last week, after visiting several U.S. cities including Baltimore, the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent released a preliminary report in which they urged the U.S. government to address the legacy of slavery, post-Reconstruction “Jim Crow” laws and racial subordination in the United States with reparatory justice.

Our panel of guests addresses this call for reparations: Stephanie Franklin, Founder, President & CEO of the Franklin Law Group, P.C.; Vernellia Randall, Professor Emeritus at University of Dayton; and Michael Scott, Chief Equity Officer/President/Co-Founder of Equity Matters.
