WHYY’s new three-part series The Atonement Agenda explores plans and concepts for reparations that could increase access to housing, education and business capital thus seeking to repair the Black lives and communities devastated by slavery, Jim Crow, and other forms of systemic racism. Join WHYY’s Christopher “Flood the Drummer” Norris for a screening of The Atonement Agenda’s first episode and a discussion with local experts about reparations and whether these compensations could close the racial wealth gap.
