Description

Many people are aware of the injustices Black Americans have suffered over the centuries but feel powerless when it comes to repairing the harm done.

The inequality remains even after laws and policies have been corrected. Calculating and implementing financial reparations will require large-scale government action, which can feel out of reach or overwhelming for the average person. Robert Turner provides an accessible guide for individuals and groups wanting to influence significant institutional action while also acting on their own to repair the effects of racial injustice in our communities, churches, and spheres of influence. Dividing into categories of individual, social, institutional, and spiritual repair, Turner offers the longest list of reparations currently published, with more than one hundred actions readers can begin practicing and advocating for to help balance economic injustice, undo hurtful decisions from decades past, and rally public support for bold and principled legislation.

Perfect for book clubs and group study! You can access free digital resources for use in group settings at www.wjkbooks.com/Reparations.

Reviews

"This powerful book offers a comprehensive guide to repairing the deep-seated wounds of systemic injustice, urging individuals, communities, organizations, and institutions to take meaningful action. Turner's approach is both enlightening and actionable, urging us to confront our past, engage in transformative measures, and collectively pave the way for a more inclusive future. It is my sincere hope that readers, inspired by this work, will join the movement for reparations and contribute to the repair of our society." – Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., Civil Rights Activist and Founder, Rainbow PUSH Coalition

His faith is seen in his life's work and he has become a national figure through his service, leadership, and success in elevating the consciousness of our nation. In Creating a Culture of Repair, Rev. Turner sets forth a thought-provoking roadmap for righting past wrongs and building a more just, equal, and strong America. The book is full of his wisdom and inspiration. It is an important read that not only elevates his big ideas but also fortifies the spirit in trying times." –Senator Cory Booker
