We start on the shores of the Caribbean islands of the 15th century. As white European men landed on its shores, the story of centuries of colonialism and slavery, and today’s global inequality begins.
This EQUALS is the first of a two-part special on the case for reparations.
Nabil and Nadia speak with the Jamaican scholar Professor Verene Shepherd who with others across the world is demanding repair for those atrocities.
Professor Verene Shepherd is a social historian and the Director of the Centre for Reparation Research at The University of the West Indies. She is the Chair the United Nation’s Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination and was Vice Chair of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Reparation Commission.
