Case for Black Reparations - 03 edition

Case for Black Reparations (ISBN10: 0807009814; ISBN13: 9780807009819)
ISBN13: 978-0807009819
ISBN10: 0807009814

Summary: Originally published in 1973, Boris Bittker's riveting study of America's debt to African-Americans was well ahead of its time. Published by Toni Morrison when she was an editor, the book came from an unlikely source: Bittker was a white professor of law at Yale University who had long been ambivalent about the idea of reparations. Through his research into the history and theory of reparations -- namely the development and enforcement of laws designed to compensate
groups for injustices imposed on them -- he found that it wasn't a "crazy, far-fetched idea." In fact, beginning with post-Civil War demands for forty acres and a mule, African-American thinkers have long made the case that compensatory measures are justified not only for the injury of slavery but for the further setbacks of almost a century of Jim Crow laws and forced school and job segregation, measures that effectively blocked African-Americans from enjoying the privledges of citizenship. The publication of important recent books by black scholars like Randall Robinson and the growth of a highly vocal reparations movement in the beginning of the twenty-first century make this book, long unavailable, essential reading.
