Just two months before Ferguson, MO exploded into protest against police violence, Ta-Nehisi Coates’ essay “The Case for Reparations” appeared in the June 2014 issue of The Atlantic. Almost exactly one year after this groundbreaking essay insists America maturate through the payment of reparations to African Americans, the City of Chicago created a reparations program for the survivors and victims of systematic police torture from the 1970s to the early 1990s--a program that could serve as a model for communities seeking justice, both in the future and for the past.
Almost one year ago in Ferguson, MO, police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed Mike Brown and left him lying in the street. Since then, the list of names of unarmed Black people whose lives have been taken by the police keeps growing.
