Event description

Description

The National African American Reparations Commission (NAARC), American Civil Liberties Union, and the ACLU of South Carolina present:

From Enslavement to Reparations: A 400 Year Journey for Justice

A Congressional Bill to Establish a Commission to Explore Reparations

Bring your friends and family out to learn more about reparations for slavery, and legislation that would establish a commission to examine the institution of slavery and its legacy and make recommendations for reparations to Congress.

Join scholars, activists and other community leaders as we discuss the bill and the progress being made on one of the most important issues critical to the pursuit of racial justice in America.

Our first stop is Charleston!

Charleston was established in 1670 and became the 5th largest city in North America before 1700. Its history is intertwined with the American legacy of slavery as much as any other city in the country.
