Paying the Debt for SlaveryStreaming Video - 2006
In addition to harming those directly enslaved, slavery in America has stigmatized all black Americans and deeply wounded a nation committed to providing liberty and justice for all. This highly charged yet balanced NewsHour program broaches the subject of social and financial reparations for descendants of African-American slaves. Representative John Conyers (D-MI), the introducer of reparation legislation to Congress; proponent Lerone Bennett, author of Forced into Glory; dissenter Walter Williams, of George Mason University; and others talk about the horrors of slavery, post-traumatic slavery syndrome, and forms of reparation.
