Why Reparations? The Racial Wealth Gap: Understanding the Economic Basis for Repair.

Join us for a conversation with Lotte Lieb Dula, creator of reparations4slavery.com. With her own family's history of slaveholding as a backdrop, Lotte will explore different aspects of the movement for reparations for slavery. She will look at the genesis of white wealth in parallel with the historical harms that resulted from the enslavement of African Americans, creating the current 10-to-1 racial wealth gap. What are some of the first steps white people might take to begin down the path of repair?

Lotte Lieb Dula, retired financial strategist, is convener of the racial justice group Coming To The Table’s ( https://comingtothetable.org/ ) Denver Chapter. After researching her genealogy and discovering that her ancestors were slaveholders, Lotte committed to making reparations for her family’s role in enslaving Africans.

Lotte is the founder of www.reparations4slavery.com a portal for white families wishing to walk the path of racial healing through making reparations. Lotte serves on Coming To The Table’s Reparations Working Group and is a founding donor of The Denver Foundation’s Reparations Fund. (Denverfoundation.org) Lotte was featured in a Denver panel discussion on reparations, Reparations: An Overdue Conversation
(https://dazzledenver.com/speaks/reparations-an-overdue-conversation/).
