CLGS Jewish Queeries and the Richard S. Dinner Center for Jewish Studies present:

Listening to the Heart: What Jewish Texts Say about Reparations

Are reparations for African-Americans a Jewish justice issue? Are they a Queer justice issue? Reparations are not simply about slavery. They are also for the legacy of slavery's White Supremacist laws and policies that have marginalized and segregated in every sector of American economic, social, and spiritual life. We invite participants to explore how selected government policies of the 20th century have affected the socio-economic trajectories of their families, then consider how Jewish texts address restitution and/or reconciliation, especially for slavery.
