Summit attendees will hear updates from the Community Reparations Commission’s Impact Focus Areas and in turn, provide feedback on their proposed recommendations. The program features keynote speaker George Fatheree, an attorney who helped return a property in California to the Black family who owned and lost it in the 1920s.
