A Case for Reparations

February 26 from 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

$1 – $30

Join us for A Case for Reparations, a powerful conversation between Oakland community leaders as a part of OMCA’s special exhibition Angela Davis: Seize the Time.

In September 2020, California enacted the first-in-the-nation Reparations Task Force to study the institution of slavery and its lingering negative effects on the prosperity of Black Americans. Five areas of study for this task force include property ownership, devaluation of Black-owned businesses, housing discrimination, mass incarceration and over-policing, and healthcare. 

Listen to a powerful discussion between Oakland leaders who are working to eliminate these injustices. Ndidi Love, strategist, consultant and housing advocate with a commitment to Black Liberation and economic justice, and Cat Brooks, co-founder of the Anti Police-Terror Project and Executive Director of The Justice Teams Network, will unpack these urgent themes.

Tickets for this event will be available soon.
