Actor Danny Glover, author Ta-Nehisi Coates, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), and others testified on slavery reparations before a House Judiciary subcommittee. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), who sponsored a bill calling for a commission to study and provide reparations proposals, talked about the legacy of slavery and quoted current-day statistics on African Americans. Author Ta-Nehisi Coates addressed comments made by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in opposition to reparations, telling the subcommittee, “For a century after the Civil War, black people were subjected to a relentless campaign of terror, a campaign that extended well into the lifetime of Majority Leader McConnell.” close
