Nzingha Lecture 4: History of African Reparations Movement in Britain
Part of Queen Nzingha lecture series 10 March 2013 at Birkbeck University
This lecture features Esther Stanford-Xosei, Reparations Activist and PHD student, who takes us beyond the usual discourse about theories on the deservedness of reparations for Africans and People of African Descent, to how reparations has been envisioned and is currently being advocated in practice.
Her lecture covers: What are reparations? social, cultural, physical, psychological, legal, financial? Who in the world has received reparations and why? How far back does the reparations movement in the UK go? How have people of African heritage in the UK articulated the struggle for reparations? How do we go about achieving reparations? Who benefits from reparations and how? What can you do to support the reparations movement ?
