"028 Slavery and Reparations (Part 1)" > This two part episode covers the history of slavery and its legacy in the United States, contemporary inequalities, and the possible role of reparations.

This two part episode covers the history of slavery and its legacy (myriad social inequities) in the United States, contemporary inequalities between African-Americans and Caucasians, and the possible role of reparations in redressing centuries of black exploitation (including how such reparations might be structured, and what other groups should be eligible). My guest is Thomas A. LaVeist, PhD, Dean, Professor, and Weatherhead Presidential Chair in Health Equity, Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine; Member of the National Academy of Medicine; Editor of  Legacy of the Crossing - Life death and triumph among descendants of the world's greatest forced migration; Race, Ethnicity and Health (with Lydia Isaac); and Minority Populations and Health - An introduction to health disparities in the United States; and author of numerous publications.
