“Conversations at Noon on the Connecticut Freedom Trail” Belinda Royal Sutton: Reparations Then and Now

February 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Featured Speaker:
Raymond A. Wimbush, Director of the Institute for Urban Research
Morgan State University

This event is FREE and open to the general public. 

Among reparations scholars and activists, Belinda Royall’s 1782 Petition to the Massachusetts Legislature, marks the beginning of the reparations struggle in what would become the United States of America. Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman’s lawsuit just a year earlier, may have been an inspiration for Belinda, and her remarkable lawsuit 241 years later echoes in all areas of the reparation movement. For this month’s Conversations at Noon on the CT Freedom Trail join us for an exploration into Belinda Royall’s story and the reparations movement.
