Slavery and the Reparations Debate

Are calls in America for reparations for the slave trade politically viable? What are the implications for future policy if so?

In America, demands for reparations for slavery are reaching a crescendo. But is it possible to rectify injustices from the past through compensation or reparations? What are the implications for progressive and radical politics of making demands for reparations? John Torpey, who teaches at the City University of New York and is author of Making Whole What Has Been Smashed: On Reparations Politics, in conversation with Robin Blackburn is the author of The Making of New World Slavery and teaches at the University of Essex and the New School for Social Research in New York.
