October 12 is the International day for reparations related to colonization. Its goal is to remember the crimes against humanity connected to European colonization and the enslavement of African people and to call for reparations for these enduring injustices. On October 12, 2014 the project „Enriching Public Discourse – Empowering African People“ gathered in London’s Black Cultural Archives to discuss what reparations could mean.
