Martin Luther King Sunday–Is America Ready for Reparations?

Rev. Scott W. Alexander preaching. Scott writes:”For many years, I was not personally persuaded that government-initiated financial “reparations” to current day African Americans–in partial restitution for the economic injustice done to generations of our African American population over the last 400 years since the first slaves arrived on American shores–was either appropriate or feasible. But recently I have (for the first time)seriously reflected on the complexities of the issue, and I am now persuaded that not only are reparations financially possible, they are morally necessary. This sermon will be the springboard for an op-ed piece I hope to get published nationally. There will be an opportunity for further congregational dialogue following the service, back in the Sanctuary at 11:30 a.m.”
