St. Croix–The 33rd Legislature of the U.S. Virgin Islands will rebroadcast “H.R. 40 and the Path to Restorative Justice” hearing which was held this past week in the United States Congress.
The Bill addresses the fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865 and would establish a commission to study and consider a national apology and proposal for reparations for the institution of slavery, its racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans, and the impact of these forces on living African-Americans. The Bill also requires the Commission to make recommendations to the Congress on appropriate remedies.
The rebroadcast can be viewed on LEGIT Channel 26 on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 6PM.
