How Land Reparations Can Heal Black Women’s Trauma
The prevailing ethos in mainstream United States for centuries has been an unrealistic ideal of “rugged individualism.” But crises like the COVID-19 pandemic laid bare the notion that we can get by without relying on one another. In a new op-ed for YES! Magazine, Farah Tanis writes “American individualism has not worked for BIPOC individuals and families, who have historically leaned on each other for support and survival.” She makes the case that “Black land collectives, whether through deeded lands or land trusts, are a remedy for the collective grief from which Black people have struggled to recover.”
