Description

Midday on Juneteenth: Live from the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture


Reparations: Can America Atone for the Sin of Slavery?


Tom Hall moderates a panel of guests:

  • Dr. Ray Winbush, Research professor and director of the Institute for Urban Research at Morgan State University. He has written numerous articles and has published three books including, Belinda’s Petition: A Concise History of Reparations for the TransAtlantic Slave Trade; and Should America Pay?: Slavery; and the Raging Debate on Reparations.

  • Adjoa A. Aiyetoro, Prof. Emerita at the William H. Bowen School of Law and a founding member of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations (N’COBRA).

  • E.R. Shipp, Pulitzer Prize winner for commentary, and a founding faculty member of the School of Global Journalism and Communication at Morgan State University. She is the first black woman to receive the Pulitzer in the category of commentary.


Since the end of the Civil War, our nation has grappled with the question of reparatory justice for African-American descendants of slaves. Scholars, legislators and several Democratic presidential candidates have been vocal about the need to confront slavery’s legacy of socio-economic inequality.

In this special Juneteenth edition of Midday, we’ll talk about reparations. What does America owe people who are descended from enslaved people? Who would qualify, and what form might reparations take? Who would decide?

Join us as part of the live audience at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum as Midday host Tom Hall moderates a panel discussion, broadcast live on WYPR Radio.
