The idea of reparations for the descendants of slaves is not a new idea. It’s been floated many times over the past several years. What is a more unusual idea is one introduced last week by DC Ward 5 Councilman Kenyan McDuffie. It’s a bill that seeks reparations for the DC descendants of chattel slavery.
