SOUTH BEND, Ind. --The Common Council will discuss whether or not the city should take steps for reparations, with voting on a resolution scheduled for Monday.
The so called, Reparatory Justice, is to address racist-exclusionary practices and historic disadvantages against minorities.
The resolution would call for a formal apology to the affected communities, neighborhood investments and a commission to explore the financial reparations.
It would also ask South Bend schools to include challenges face by African Americans in the city, as part of its curriculum.
