"Slave Reparations: The Final Passage" with Arlene Corsano
Author and lecturer Arlene Corsano will present her film Slave Reparations: The Final Passage on Wednesday, June 14 at 7 p.m. in the library's Mackay Room. Following the presentation, Corsano will add her own story of white privilege, while growing up in the 1950s and 60s.
Corsano's presentation will include a 27 minute video she produced several years ago, Slave Reparations: The Final Passage. This documentary has aired here in the U.S. and also on SABA (South Africa’s state television channel). It was also part of several film festivals. This video features many well known proponents of reparations, including Reverend Herbert Daughtry, Professor Manning Marable, Dr. Alvin Poussaint, Richard E. Barber, Diane Sammons, Charles Barron, Donna Lamb, and Englewood's own Eddie Hadden, charter member of the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Minority Concerns and relative of one of the oldest surviving victims of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot.
