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 breakfast conversation for local groups interested in the subject.
Our first public lecture will take place on January 18 at 6PM with Frank B. Wilderson III author of Afropessimism and Incognegro.
A second conversation with Professor Wilderson is still being scheduled. Groups may indicate interest in attending here.
