The Past, Present, and Future of Reparations


Add to My Calendar Wednesday, February 19, 2020 4:00pm to 5:00pm


NYU School of Law
Vanderbilt Hall | Greenberg Lounge
New York, NY 10012

Join Center for Constitutional Rights Senior Staff Attorney Omar Farrah at the NYU Review of Law & Social Change's 50th Anniversary Colloquium to explore a topic that lies at the heart of America's identity, but is too often ignored by the legal world: reparations for Black Americans.

For hundreds of years, the law has maintained racial injustice and curtailed meaningful remedies for reparative justice in the United States. This Colloquium will bring together scholars, legal practitioners, community activists, and policymakers to imagine the possibilities—and limits—of the law in facilitating truth, reconciliation, and meaningful reparations. 

Moderating the panel, Omar will be in discussion with former Center for Constitutional Rights Executive Director and convener of the National African American Reparations Commission Ron Daniels, Center for Constitutional Rights Board President, Columbia Law School Professor Katherine Franke, and Tulane University Law School Professor Robert Westley.
