A global spotlight fell on the United States in the summer of 2019, as the nation held a congressional hearing on reparations for African Americans in Washington, DC. The world watched as historians, writers, scholars, activists, and politicians testified and made the case to create a commission (H.R. 40) to study the effects of slavery, Jim Crow segregation, and the continuous mistreatment of African Americans in the United States with the ultimate goal of restitution. Over 120 years have passed since the 1898 massacre in Wilmington. Some things have changed. But some things still remain the same.
