Actress-activist Erika Alexander (Living Single) and filmmaker Whitney Dow (Two Towns of Jasper) present a preview of their new PBS documentary “The Big Payback,” which looks at the first tax-funded reparations bill in the United States and at one local leader as she and her community struggle to realize restitution for its citizens.

Alexander and Dow are joined by FirstRepair founder and Executive Director Robin Rue Simmons and KQED’s Ariana Proehl to discuss how reparations for slavery are being devised and enacted at the state and local levels.

Presented in partnership with Black Public Media, Color Farm Media, and Independent Lens.
