Kansas City Council Votes to Form Reparations Commission

Brian Dulle, WDAF, January 12, 2023

Kansas City leaders passed a vote Thursday at the city council meeting to start the process of paying reparations for slavery and segregation.

The next step is for Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas to appoint a group of 13 people to form a commission within the next 90 days.


In its state of Black Kansas City 2020, the Urban League said reparations could take the form of cash payments, land, tax relief, scholarships, and community development funds.
