On April 14th, for the first time in history, the House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of the reparations bill, H.R. 40, which would establish the commission to study reparations proposals. As the bill was getting marked up on Capitol Hill, Mark moderated a panel of some of the key players in the reparations movement, and we’ll be bringing you that motivating conversation all week long. In today’s discussion, the panelists explain what it means for a bill to get “marked up” and they unravel the complicated process of (hopefully) getting this bill passed. They also explore the misrepresentations of the movement, and parse the relationship between local versus national reparations.
Panelists: Kamm Howard, National Co-Chair of NCOBRA; Kennis Henry, Chairperson of NCOBRA Legislative Committee; Reverend Dr. JoAnn Watson, Senior Pastor of Westside Unity Church; Dr. Raymond Winbush, Director of the Institute for Urban Research; Nkechi Taifa, Founder & Principal CEO of Taifa Group LLC; Dr. Ron Daniels, President of the Institute of the Black World Conference; Dr. Greg Kimathi Carr, Professor of Africana Studies, Howard University
