Reparatory Justice, a concept rooted in addressing historical injustices and their present-day consequences, has gained significant attention in recent years.
The African Diaspora, comprising individuals and communities descended from Africans who were forcibly displaced and enslaved during the transatlantic slave trade, has faced generations of systemic discrimination and marginalization.

Her expertise lies in facilitating workshops and discussions that empower individuals to express themselve’s through various artistic mediums.
The roundtable discussion will revolve around the central question, “How do we listen to the African Diaspora voices of the future generation in the context of Reparatory Justice? We are responsible to leave no Community behind.” This thought-provoking question sets the tone for the event, encouraging participants to delve into the intricacies of ensuring that every voice is heard, and no community is left behind.
