THE COST OF INHERITANCE, an America ReFramed special, is an hour-long documentary that explores the complex issue of reparations in the United States using a thoughtful approach to history, historical injustices, systemic inequities, and the critical dialogue on racial conciliation. Through personal narratives, community inquiries, and scholarly insights, it aims to inspire understanding of the scope and rationale of the reparations debate.
On January 8, a panel featuring the filmmakers and subjects discussed the making of the film, what reparations can look like across the country and where they think the conversation is going next. Watch the recorded event!
