LIVESTREAM: House Hearing on Reparations

By Kenrya Rankin Jun 19, 2019

As the nation celebrates Juneteenth—June 19, 1865, was the day the last enslaved people in American learned that they were free—the House Committee on the Judiciary is holding a hearing on reparations. Titled “H.R. 40 and the Path to Restorative Justice,” it will feature testimony from writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, activist and actor Danny Glover and economist Dr. Julianne Malveaux.
