An online reparations program designed by K. Melchor Quick Hall, S. Rae Peoples, and Dr. Amanda Kemp, and facilitated by and for white inheritors of wealth.
February 2023 (multiple scheduling options below)
The Aiming for Justice workshop provides the opportunity for US-based white inheritors of wealth to participate in a popular education learning experience, predicated on participants' collective pledge of a $40K material contribution to the lives of Black people.
This course is for white people interested in exploring and engaging a grassroots moral movement toward race-based reparations. As part of the registration process, participants will make individual pledges of reparations, and the program will only move forward if the collective pledge amount exceeds $40,000. During the month of the program, participants learn from and with each other, guided by white cohort leaders who were previous participants. Together, the group navigates a carefully curated curriculum designed by three Black women who have long advocated for racial justice.
Participants meet twice weekly for 90-minute synchronous sessions with cohort groups, and share a contemplative synchronous space with curriculum creators on Saturdays. In between sessions, participants stay connected through an online platform, through which they can submit assignments, ask questions, and cultivate community. At the end of the second week, participants transfer their pledges, totaling at least $40K, and learn this year's recipients.
This reparations workshop was designed as a popular education experience that would not pay homage to the knowledge of any single expert. Past participants will take lead by facilitating all synchronous workshop sessions. Videos, readings, and workshop design will be managed by Dr. Amanda Kemp and S. Rae Peoples, along with K. Melchor Quick Hall, who has designed and modified the workshop for the past four iterations. Melchor sees the current design as part of the evolution of the workshop that requires white registrants trust that a collective of Black feminist racial justice workers will make a wise decision about the investment of pledged money.
This program will be online will follow this schedule - all sessions are Eastern Time (US & Canada). Participants will choose at time of registration whether they intend to join the Monday/Wednesday Cohort or the Tuesday/Thursday Cohort. Each Cohort will review the same information, the purpose of the two cohorts is to accommodate different schedules and create a more intimate group experience.
