Why We’re Still Talking About Slavery 150 Years Later...
In this week’s episode Amber and Erika are joined by Dr. Calvin Schermerhorn of Arizona State University to discuss slavery, capitalism, and reparations. Dr. Schermerhorn helps draw a straight line from slavery’s fueling of American capitalism to the inequity and wealth disparities that plague Black America today. We also discuss the need for reparations and this nation’s antagonism to righting the wrongs inflicted by chattel slavery. Tune in to see what we’re talking about!
