The documentary will play as part of the University of Michigan’s 2024 MLK Symposium

The Center for Social Solutions is proud to partner with the Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives to bring you an exclusive screening of The Cost of Inheritance. The CSS co-produced documentary traces the nation’s legacy of systemic inequities to modern-day America, introducing audiences to descendants of enslaved persons and slave owners, profiling their complex intertwined histories, and detailing how their quest to bridge divides galvanized them to seek reparations together. The film follows the long journey of individuals and communities seeking to make reparations a reality on the individual, local, and national levels.

The Cost of Inheritance is a co-production of WQED, The University of Michigan Center for Social Solutions, and presented in partnership with WORLD and American Documentary.

The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Earl Lewis.
