Reparations for U.S. Enslavement and the Transatlantic Slave Trade: Challenges and Opportunities

12:00PM - 01:30PM Online via Zoom
 The International Law Students Association (ILSA), Human Rights Brief, African Law and Policy Association (ALPA), Black Law Students Association (BLSA), and Native American Law Students Association (NALSA) at the American University Washington College of Law present a discussion on the challenges and opportunities for securing reparations for U.S. enslavement and the transatlantic slave trade through both international and domestic legal frameworks. The generational harms of the transatlantic slave trade necessitate adequate reparations. The gathered experts will consider the potential for reparations in the U.S. and Liberia and will reflect on past reparative practices to inform what practical steps are required to seek reparations from the U.S. government.
