In these troubled times, where we are witnessing first-hand the ravages that the afterlives of colonialism and slavery continue to wreak upon society, the International Network of Scholars and Activists for Afrikan Reparations (INOSAAR) would like to send a message of solidarity and support to all of our members, as well as those on our mailing list and beyond. We hope you are well and safe.
