Reparations: A Solution to the Racial Wealth Divide

In this episode, we explore reparations as a possible solution to bridging the racial wealth divide. We're joined by Dr. Andre Perry, a senior fellow with the Brookings Institution and a scholar-in-residence at American University. Perry has authored the book, Know Your Price: Valuing Black Lives and Property in America’s Black Cities and co-authored a Brookings policy brief: “Why we need reparations for Black Americans.” Perry argues that reparations are not only the solution, but they’re also the morally right thing to do.
