Danny Glover Requests Your Support for IBW and the Reparations Movement

By December 11, 2018 December 28th, 2018 NAARC Posts, Reparations, Video/Audio

We are profoundly thankful to Danny Glover for his support of the work of the Institute of the Black World 21st Century (IBW) and the National African American Reparations Commission (NAARC). As a tireless advocate for the U.N. Decade for People of African Descent and reparatory justice, Danny Glover has been with IBW every step of the way in our successful effort to intensify the U.S. and global reparations movements. We urgently need your support to continue this vital work.

Highlights of the amazing work of the National African American Reparations Commission

Other Important Reparations Work

  • NAARC is also working with organizations in Columbia to assist them in establishing a National Reparations Commission.
  • NAARC is focusing on Colleges and Universities in the U.S. which benefited from enslavement, e.g., Georgetown, University of Chicago, Yale, Harvard, Dartmouth, to assist students and community-based organizations to demand and receive reparations.

Winning Reparations is Possible

  • The City of Chicago recently awarded compensation to the victims of torture at the hands of corrections officers in the city/county jails.
  • The University of Edinburgh, Scotland just awarded reparations to the University of the West Indies for profiting from enslavement of Africans.

IBW and NAARC Urgently Need
Your Financial Support to Continue the Fight

One of the major limitations of the reparations movement is the lack of adequate financial resources, MONEY, to mount sustained campaigns. We are really on the verge of winning victories in the quest for reparations, but all to often we are forced to scratch and scrape up resources to move forward. NAARC would like to convene the additional Hearings and Town Hall Meetings noted above and to mount a major education and advocacy campaign to maximize Co-Sponsors of HR-40, but we do not have the resources to do it.

That’s where you come in. Please heed the appeal by Danny Glover and make a generous, tax-deductible donation to help NAARC make the improbable, possible. Our immediate goal is just $25,000 to convene the next two Hearings/Town Hall Meetings. If 250 friends/supporters of reparations would donate $100, we will achieve this modest goal. However, we deeply appreciate any tax-deductible donation you make.

Let’s go get our “40 acres and a Mule!”

Dr. Ron Daniels,


President, Institute of the Black World 21st Century
