Where Do We Go From Here? Why We Need Reparations for Black Americans

Dr. Brandon Crowley
Tuesday, May 25, 2021 - 7:00pm

Join Dr. Brandon Crowley as he speaks about the economic injustices that have persisted since slavery and how these injustices have led to a wealth gap between white and Black Americans. How can we as a nation go about righting these wrongs? What role would reparations play and how would eligibility be determined?

Register through Zoom. The event will also be livestreamed on the Burlington Public Library Facebook page.
