How St. Louis is approaching the question of reparations for Black citizens

While some states are just now, more than 150 years after it was abolished, removing slavery from their state constitutions, St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones is creating a commission focused on reversing some of the historic damage slavery inflicted on people in the region. Jones will soon appoint a counsel to look at the race-based harms Black St. Louisians have faced and continue to face as a legacy of the institution of slavery and racism. To discuss what this process could look like for St. Louis, the PBS NewsHour’s Nicole Ellis spoke with NewsHour community correspondent in St. Louis, Gabrielle Hays.
