Lynching: Reparations as Restorative Justice
Please join the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project (CRRJ) and Africana Studies Program at Northeastern University for this significant and timely conference on reparations as a form of restorative justice for the families of lynching victims.
This event will bring together scholars, lawyers and descendants of lynching victims to explore avenues for compensatory reparations and other forms of repair. Testimonies from the families of lynching victims will set the tone and reverence of the day. Several legendary activists, scholars and artists will join us, live noting the significance of this time in US history. This conference is open to the public.
