Is there a Social Movement for African Reparations in the UK?

This is a lecture I gave at the University of Birbeck as part of the Queen Nzinga Lecture Series.

This lecture takes us beyond the usual discourse about theories on the deservedness of reparations for Africans and People of African Descent, to how reparations has been envisioned and is currently being advocated in practice. The lecture covers:

What are reparations? social, cultural, physical, psychological, legal, financial?

Who in the world has received reparations and why?

How far back does the reparations movement in the UK go?

How do we go about achieving reparations? Who benefits from reparations and how?

What can you do to support the reparations movement?
