In part 3 of our educational events on Reparations, we have the privilege of hearing from Professor kihana miraya ross. Northwestern Professor kihana miraya ross has received a Spencer grant to study having educational reparations to repair historic educational injustice in Evanston. “‘In recognizing the debt owed to its Black residents and pledging actual dollars towards repairing centuries of educational inequities, Evanston is in unchartered waters. The world will be watching as the first city in the U.S. to approve reparations embarks on an unparalleled move toward educational justice for its Black residents,’” said ross, describing the moment as an unprecedented research opportunity. The project will inform ross’s second book and may be the subject of a feature-length documentary”. Northwestern Now (9/1/21). Ross is an Assistant Professor of African American Studies at Northwestern with a Ph.D. in Social and Cultural Studies of Education. We are looking forward to this community event.
