Into Reparations with Nikole Hannah-Jones - Into America Podcast – Ep.

For centuries, systemic racism has prevented Black Americans from building wealth. Is it time for reparations? New York Times staff writer, Nikole Hannah-Jones thinks so. On his episode of Into America, host Trymaine Lee and Hannah-Jones talk about her recent New York Times Magazine cover story “What is Owed.” In the piece, she argues that the only solution to over 400 years of slavery, racial segregation, and discrimination is restitution paid by the U.S. government to the descendants of enslaved people. They discuss her seminal piece and why this may be the moment when the idea of reparations just might become a reality. Plus, she explains what reparations might look like and why they are more urgent than ever. https://link.chtbl.com/obvkRMCh?sid=ep33» Subscribe to NBC News: http://nbcnews.to/SubscribeToNBC
