This is viewer supported news

Thousands of African American activists descended on Washington DC this past Saturday, the 115th birthday of Marcus Garvey. Busloads of people came from across the country to demand reparations from the US government for centuries of slavery and oppression.

The day was billed as the "Millions for Reparations March." Among those who spoke at the rally were Representative John Conyers who has introduced legislation in Congress for 13 years to create a commission to study reparations. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan also spoke, along with dozens of reparations activists from across the country. We turn now to a speech from Saturday’s rally given by the Rev. Herbert Daughtry, one of the organizers of the rally. Daughtry is pastor of The House of the Lord Church in Brooklyn, NY.

Guest:

  • Rev. Herbert Daughtry, pastor of The House of the Lord Church in Brooklyn, NY.
