African American Reparations: A roadmap for healing America and positioning the country for the future.
By: Bryant W. Holt
About the Book
Since the end of the American slave era, the descendants of enslaved Africans remain among the most marginalized and underrepresented groups in the United States, ranking last in wealth and education. Most Black populations live in urban areas where other groups own the land and properties where they reside. This book introduces the African American Reparations Act of 2030. Who will receive reparations? How will it pass into law and then be implemented? African American Reparations handles those questions deftly as well as providing suggestions on how to build consensus among the U.S. government by engaging the American people in a national conversation.
