tags: slavery, reparations
Essex County was on the frontline of a continued campaign for African-American reparations in the United States last weekend when dozens of marchers took to the streets of Newark.
According to organizers, Saturday’s rally – spearheaded by the Newark-based People's Organization for Progress – was held in support of HR-40, a bill which would create a commission to develop “reparation proposals” for African-Americans.
The proposed law is currently sitting before the U.S. Congress Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice and can be seen here. It would “establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery.”
