For this Bowman Lecture, Professor William Darity Jr. will draw on the critical research from his latest book, From Here to Equality (co-authored with Kristen Mullen). The talk will address the importance of a program of reparations for black Americans that can achieve the goals of acknowledgement, redress, and closure after the grievous injustices that occurred in the US after slavery.
