Community Reparations Summit: Screening of “The Big Payback”


Mullen & James Humanities Lecture Hall

October 5, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

UNC Asheville will host a screening of the documentary, “The Big Payback,” at 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 5, in the Mullen & James Humanities Hall.

“The Big Payback” follows a rookie alderwoman from Evanston, Illinois, who led the passage of the first tax-funded reparations for Black Americans. While she and her community struggle with the burden to make restitution for its citizens, a national racial crisis engulfs the country. Will the debt ever be addressed, or is it too late for this reparations movement to finally get the big payback?

Locally Black-owned food trucks will be available to attendees from 5-6:15 pm.

This film screening is part of the Community Reparations Summit
