Reparations. How much does the general public know about this topic? On this episode, Allison talks with Dr. Ashley D. Farmer, an Associate Professor in the Departments of History and African and Africa Diaspora at the University of Texas at Austin. She is also the author of Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era. Dr. Farmer educates Allison and listeners about the history of reparations from the original promise of 40 acres & a mule to current conversations. She focuses especially on the importance of Callie House and Audley “Queenmother” Moore in furthering the fight for reparations. Dr. Farmer also discusses the impact reparations would have on lives of Black women. The Who’s that Lady (from History)? is Alice Allison Dunnigan, the first African-American White House Correspondent.
