The Truth Telling Project’s premier program, Grassroots Reparations Campaign, invites you to register for the 5th cohort of the Building a Culture of Reparations, a course that, led by our own Dr. David Ragland.
Building a Culture of Reparations examines the history, spiritual, conceptual (ethical and moral), and practical dimensions of reparations as a global movement. Recently the conversation around reparations for African Americans and Indigenous peoples is experiencing more attention than at any other time in U.S. history. Over a five-week period, reparations scholars, activists and practitioners will share their experience and knowledge of reparations. Each session will explore seminal writings and experiences of the global reparations movement as well as offering embodied practices and possibilities for action.
