THE CASE FOR SLAVERY REPARATIONS IN THE US

This section of articles will document the recent recognition of the economic, emotional, mental and physical hardships that the descendants of black American slaves have faces as a result of slavery. The articles will focus on the different responses from a variety of states.

Despite the abolishment of slavery in 1865, the descendants of the ex-slaves, who moved from the South to the North during the Great Migration, still suffer economic and discriminatory hardships. As a result, state and federal government’s attention has been directed towards these issues, which has initiated a period of change through reparations.

The following articles will briefly explain the recent advances in the slavery reparations cases in the United States, starting with Robin Rue Simmons’ fight for economic reparations in Evanston, Illinois.
