Coming out of the innovative Book-in-a-Day event facilitated by the Global Afrikan Congress ? Nova Scotia Chapter, R Is for Reparations invites readers to listen to the voices of young activists as they share their hopes and dreams about the global demand for redress, compensation and restitution for the horrors of the Atlantic Slave Trade. This book is drawn from the voices of the children who participated in the Book-in-a-Day event and rode on an imaginary Underground Railroad Freedom ride, equipped with Elders who served as conductors and station stops. Their words address the tragedy and resulting political, social, and economic damage caused to African People by the slave trade, slavery, colonialism, poverty and anti-Black racism.

Their reactions and reflections lead the contributions for this compelling, one-of-a-kind Alphabet Book suitable for all ages.
