California is trying to lead the way on reparations but not clear on the path to take


California recently allocated $12 million for reparations for the state’s Black residents as a way to compensate them for the harm caused by the legacy of slavery and current discrimination.

Although it’s not clear what the money will be spent on, it is clear it won’t be directed toward cash payments at the moment, which many in the reparations movement say is the best way to atone for the legacy and harm of slavery.

NPR’s Adrian Florido speaks with NPR race and identity correspondent Sandhya Dirks about the latest on California’s attempts to lead the way on reparations.
