Untold Legacy
In February 2005, the NY City Council considered a bill that would require companies doing business with NY to investigate and reveal any past complicity and profit from the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Though resisted by the NYC mayor, Chicago already passed such a law, resulting in JP Morgan Chase apologizing and providing some restitution for its slave-based past. This short is a quick introduction to the history of New York's slave-based development, and why redress is due.
