100 Facts On Reparations For Native Black Americans

20. The ADOS Movement

The American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) describes itself as the true reparations movement. It was founded by Yvette Carnell, a former Capitol Hill political staffer-turned-social-media-blogger and host of the “Breaking Brown” political show, and Antonio Moore, a former Los Angeles district attorney and Emmy-nominated film producer.

ADOS lists a number of reparation demands.

ADOS was formed to reclaim and restore the national character of African-American identity, and the group experience of being enslaved in the U.S.A., according to ADOS website. The organization uses YouTube and Twitter to promote reparations. Supporters see reparations as a way to address the wealth gaps that persist to this day from slavery and systemic discrimination against African Americans. ADOS sees a debt owed to African Americans after 400 years of slavery in the U.S. and the damages that it did to African Americans. ADOS is credited with creating a national dialogue that has entered into the mainstream media.
