Should America Pay Reparations?

Should America Pay:  Slavery and the Raging Debate on Reparations

In 2003, Ray Winbush edited and authored  Should America Pay?  Slavery and the Raging Debate on Reparations.  It has been called by many the "Bible of the Reparations movement" since it provides a history, current status and pro/con views about reparations for the TransAtlantic Slave Trade.  Cornel West said that Should America Pay? is a "must read" for understanding the reparations struggle and it instantly made Essence Magazine's bestsellers list for non-fiction.
