I have resources on reparations at NEW & REVISED: THE BEST RESOURCES I’VE USED (OR WILL USE) IN LESSONS ABOUT RACE & RACISM.
However, especially now with the idea being taken more seriously in the public debate, I thought I’d take the materials there – and add more – to create a new “Best” list to add to all my resources on race and racism.
I hope you’ll suggest additions in the comments section:
Here are resources I’ve previously shared:
You may have already heard about, or read, Ta-Nehisi Coates’ article in The Atlantic titled “The Case for Reparations.”
It’s an amazing article, and Bill Moyers aired an interview with him about it, which I’ve embedded below:
You might also find The New Republic’s piece, Get Ready for a National Debate About Slavery Reparations, useful.
Slavery reparations are workable and affordable is from Vox.
Why white folks shouldn’t fear reparations is from The Week.
Are Reparations Due to African-Americans? is from The New York Times.
Here are newer resources:
The Debate over Reparations is a lesson plan from Morningside Center.
The Case for Reparations is by David Brooks.
Reparations: A Conversation Worth Having is from NY Times.
