CERLAC presents the third forum in the 2020-2021 Baptista lecture series: The Caribbean Case for Reparations:
Remembrance, Reclamation and Restorative Futures
The British paid approximately £20m inreparations to slaveowners at abolition in 1838. They paid nothing to the enslaved. This first event in a two-part conversation on reparations focuses on the emergence of the campaign for reparations in the Anglophone Caribbean and asks a series of questions about theorigins and achievements of the campaign, and its implications for social and political alternatives nationally, regionally and transnationally.
