Can Reparations Heal a World of Pain?
It’s mourning’ time in America. Erika and Whitney reflect on their reparations journey and calculate the personal toll it’s taken. The great Reverend Barber resets the room and builds a powerful theological case, through the lens of “The Five Pillars.” A case that exposes the moral repercussions of reparations, and what the bondsman’s price will be if America continues to ignore the bill. Then, after 28 years, Erika returns to her father’s grave at Rosemont Cemetery in Elizabeth, NJ to share her personal theory on individual moral justice, while also looking to absolve her father’s case for debts paid in full, through his own pain and suffering. And finally, we get an encore visit from Erika’s mother, Ms. Sammie, who gets the last word and gives us a Star-Spangled Banner ‘drop the mic’ performance. Step back, Mahalia!
