Economist William S. Darity speaks on reparations for descendants of enslaved Africans. The demand dates to the organizing of ex-slave Callie House, leader of the National Ex-Slave Mutual Relief, Bounty and Pension Association, chartered in 1897. The Federal Government had abandoned
freed black people to Southern white supremacist State terror and disenfranchisement when it removed Federal troops from the South to put down the Great Railroad Strike of 1877. The effect of which remains present today. Dr. Darity backs his call for reparations with some startling research from his forth coming book: "From Here to Equality: Reparations for Black Americans in the 21st Century."

Dr. Conrad Worrill, Director/Professor emeritus, Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies, NEIU, speaks about the Reparations movement and the case he brought to the United Nations charging the United States with genocide and crimes against humanity. He credits Callie House, ex-slave, as the first person framed and imprisoned by the US Government for her campaign to gain reparations in the late 1800s, her story told in Mary Frances Berry's " My Face Is Black Is True: Callie House and the Struggle for Ex-Slave Reparations".

The vestiges of slavery continue to diminish the human rights of descendants of enslaved Africans in the United States and else where. A key factor is the lack of wealth that can stabilize a family in crisis or empower ones children's educational opportunities. These are long time realities in black families as you will hear in the letter Dr. Worrill reads; a reply from an ex-slave to his former owner's request he return following emancipation.
