The mission of the National Reparations Institute, Inc. is to provide comprehensive research, to develop public policy and to publish research findings and policy recommendations on behalf of the millions of Black holocaust decedents in America who are owed restitution.


“For the remainder of the 21st century, locally and globally, we must produce thousands of great thinkers, who are also great builders and thousands of great builders who are also great thinkers. Then, and only then, will we be prepared to take our original position – on top and at the center of the world stage as proud, productive, proficient and powerful people. We will do it with reparations.”
