H.R. 40

Greetings All,

Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot of conversations about the debt owed to descendants of the Transatlantic Slave Trade here in America. So I did a little research and found a reparations bill that was originally introduced by John Conyers Jr. Named H.R. 40, this bill has been cited as the “Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act.” And it’s purpose is to address the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865.

For those who haven’t read the bill, please click here. If you’d like to discuss any of its content, feel free to comment below.

Until Next Time…
