Research & Publications

The African American Redress Network works with
communities, local governments, NGOs, and experts across
the country to explore reparations in a variety of forms.

We are proud to share with you a few of our
publications, reflecting our current efforts.

2022. AARN walked alongside many communities seeking racial repair. In Englewood and West Garfield Park, Illinois, AARN worked alongside Kamm Howard, N’COBRA, and other Black-led community groups such as RAGE, Mr. Dad’s Father’s Club, WeGrowChicago, Neighborhood Heroes, Englewood Branded, EAT, Black Chamber of Commerce, Malcolm X College West Side Learning Center, Violence Interrupters, and OM Productions International to understand the historical harms and contemporary impacts. The findings were presented to Chicago’s City Council and received media coverage by the Chicago SunTimes and Fox News. The proposal to provide guaranteed basic income is under serious consideration by Chicago’s government.

AARN also supported reparation efforts in Brown Grove, Virginia; the Colored School #4, Chelsea, NY; Africatown, Alabama; and the Black Veterans Project (BVP). Learn more in our AARN 2022 Annual Report
