Slavery and Reparations

Slavery and Reparations


10 hours

The arguments for reparations for the enslavement and brutal treatment of Africans in the Caribbean have been well presented by many notable Caribbean scholars. Disappointingly, many Black Antiguans and Barbudans are ignorant or indifferent to the reasons and justifications for reparations. YEA lectures will inform and sensitize students about the inhumane and inexcusable sufferings and exploitations of Africans during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade.
