On Sunday, April 24that 1:00 pm.

The AFM Ad Hoc committee on Reparations and Right Relations in conjunction with FSA, has invited three panelists to speak about the impact that discriminatory policies and practices based on race and wealth have in K-12 and in higher education. One example, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is thatthe wealthiest 10% of U.S. school districts spend nearly 10 times more than the poorest 10%. In addition to other topics, we will examinethe Biden-⁠Harris Administration's Historic Investments and Support for Historically Black Colleges and Universities thatwere founded in the face of discrimination and now have a proud history and legacy of achievement. Despite this record of success, disparities in resources and opportunities for HBCUs and their students persist, and the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted new and continuing challenges for HBCUs.
Everyone is welcome. The panelists will be:

Our interest in offering forums on reparations and reconciliation isin part aresponse to bothEmory University and Spelman college joining the national Mellon Foundation research project to address racial reparations.Historian Carol Anderson the Charles Howard Candler Professor of African American Studies at Emory University and one of the leaders of the program, stated that "our scholars will be working with community partners to listen and assess the toll that slavery, Jim Crow, and its modern iteration have taken on the Black community. They will then work toward crafting a series of policy recommendations for reparations to address those losses. Healing requires accountability. The point is to thrive, not just survive."Members of the Atlanta Friends Meeting have attended programs recently offered by Emory University as part of this initiative.
