“The Cost of Inheritance” is an hour-long documentary that explores the complex issue of reparations in the United States using a thoughtful approach to history, historical injustices, systemic inequities, and the critical dialogue on racial conciliation. Watch a preview.

Following the screening, engage in a panel discussion with two of the film’s subjects, Briayna Cuffie and Lotte Lieb Dula; and local experts Jallicia Jolly, PhD, and Stefan M. Bradley, PhD,Black studies professors at Amherst College; and Michele Miller, chair of Amherst’s African Heritage Reparation Assembly.
