Reparations in Rhode Island

Something is brewing for those with African and Indigenous heritage

The Boston Globe reports that the city of Providence is researching what a local reparations package might look like. Mayor Jorge Elorza says studying the issue is the first step.

Per the Globe, Elorza said this: “the first step in accepting the role Providence and Rhode Island has held in generations of pain and violence against these residents and healing some of the deepest wounds our country faces today.”
