The cover story for this months Atlantic is penned by writer and race commentator Ta-Nehisi Coates. The title? The Case for Reparations. For those who don’t know, reparations is the concept of back pay or some other type of remedy to former enslaved peoples.
The article drops tomorrow. Watch the trailer (yes, there’s a mahfuckin’ trailer!) below. There’s a short pre-release commentary over at the New Republic, if you’re interested. Coates will also be speaking with Bill Moyers about the article on Friday.
