Summary
"Roy L. Brooks reframes one of the most important, controversial, and misunderstood issues of our time in this reassessment of the growing debate on black reparations. Atonement and Forgiveness shifts the focus of the issue from the backward-looking compensation for victims to a more forward-looking opportunity for racial reconciliation. Offering a comprehensive discussion of the history of the black redress movement, this book puts forward a powerful new plan for repairing the damaged relationship between the federal government and black Americans in the aftermath of 240 years of slavery and another 100 years of government-sanctioned racial segregation."--Jacket
