In 2022 the Jefferson School African American Heritage Center will host a series of two-day conversations on the subject of reparations, funded in part by a grant from Virginia Humanities. On the first day a public lecture will be offered by invited speakers who are leading the reparations conversation across the nation. On the second day the Center will host a community conversation for local groups interested in the subject.
Our fourth public lecture will take place on 17 May at 6PM with Dr. William A. Darity, Jr and A. Kirsten Mullen, coauthors of From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the 21st Century (2020).
The talk will be streamed live on our YouTube and Facebook pages.
A community conversation is scheduled for May 18, time TBD. Groups may indicate interest in attending here, and it will occur virtually.
