On this episode Slauson Girl Speaks with Kamilah Moore, Chair of The California Reparations Task Force, about her current role helping to study and develop a plan of reparations for African-Americans in the state of California.
Kamilah Moore is a scholar and an attorney with a specialization in entertainment and intellectual property. As a law student, Moore contributed to human rights reports related to domestic and international human rights issues. While studying abroad at the University of Amsterdam, Moore wrote a master thesis exploring the intersections between international law and reparatory justice for the trans-Atlantic slave trade, chattel slavery, and their legacies.
She earned a Juris Doctorate from Columbia Law School in New York City, a Master of Law degree in International Criminal Law from the University of Amsterdam, and a Bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
We discuss the current proposals by the task force, their process of holding public hearings, how it will be determined who receives reparations, if and how reparations will ever be allocated to African-Americans, the history of slavery in California and so much more.
