RAPS Talk | The Color of Money

04/02 Monday | 12pm

The Race and Public Space (RAPS) Working Group at NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge invites you to join for a discussion on Mehrsa Baradaran’s new book, The Color of Money: Black Banks and the Racial Wealth Gap, which explores the material ramifications of racism and Jim Crow on financial practices amongst African Americans. This is the final event of the working group’s Reparations Project, a project which explores the prospect of reparations for Transatlantic slavery and colonialism, widely recognized as one of the most horrific events in world history. This inquiry will take the form of common readings to explore and frame the central issues, lectures by experts to interrogate the stakes, legal research to evaluate the case, and economic and statistical analysis to explore the feasibility of reparations for peoples and nations victimized by colonial slavery.
