No Reconciliation Without Justice: The Struggle for Reparations | Halifax Central Library | Monday, 12. February 2018

Panel Discussion
No Reconciliation Without Justice: White Supremacy, Anti-Blackness, and the Struggle for Reparations

Canadian settler society is enamoured with the idea of reconciliation with Indigenous, Black, and other marginalized peoples but much less interested in serious discussions grounding this reconciliation in material questions of justice. What would it mean to build a reconciled society rooted in a just settling of accounts including reparations for historical and ongoing injustice and violence for Black Canadians?

Join us for a panel discussion focusing on the struggle for reparations and the promise of collective liberation featuring Dr. Afua Cooper, Dr. Chike Jeffers, El Jones, and Dr. Isaac Saney. Moderated discussion to follow.
