The Atonement Agenda: Free Screening and Discussion – July 12

Posted by WHYY on July 12, 2022

WHYY’s series The Atonement Agenda explores plans and concepts for reparations that could increase access to housing, education and business capital, thus seeking to repair the Black lives and communities devastated by slavery, Jim Crow and other forms of systemic racism.

Join WHYY’s Christopher Norris for a screening and discussion with local experts about reparations and whether these compensations could close the racial wealth gap.

Panelists include:

  • Lisa Sharon Harper, author of Fortune: How Race Broke My Family and The World and How to Repair it All
  • Rev. Naomi Washington-Leapheart, Director, Mayor’s Office of Faith-Based Initiatives
  • Rashaun Williams, co-chair, N’Cobra, Philadelphia chapter
  • Khaleef Alexander, co-founder, Millennial Juneteenth

Date and Time: July 12, 2022, 7:30 PM

Location: Philadelphia Film Center, 1412 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA
