This interview aired in the August 14, 2023 episode of Crosscurrents.

On July 7, San Francisco's African American Reparations Advisory Committee submitted a report to the Board of Supervisors containing a series of recommendations aimed at redressing decades of discrimination. Some are for cash payments to those who qualify, but others are more wide-ranging, including the founding of a new university.

In this interview, we hear from San Francisco Public Press reporter Madison Alvarado about the report and where the city goes from here.
