Why Reparations Isn’t Just About Money
Right-wing attacks on education about accurate American history continue to gain steam, particularly with respect to teaching accounts of Black history.

YES! Racial Justice Editor Sonali Kolhatkar interviewed Aria Florant, co-founder and managing director of Liberation Ventures and lead author of the report, and Trevor Smith, director of narrative change at Liberation Ventures.
