Advocates call for reparations for Black Americans

World Today

The ‘Why We Can’t Wait’ coalition is calling on President Biden to issue an executive order for a commission to study the legacy of slavery and consider reparations.

They created a visual display outside the White House ahead of Juneteenth, a U.S. holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African Americans.

Lawyers from the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America known as N’COBRA, advocates from Human Rights Watch and other members of the ‘Why We Can’t Wait’ coalition are taking their message right to the President’s home.
