100 Facts On Reparations For Native Black Americans

38. What is N’COBRA?

The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America (N’COBRA) is a coalition organized for the sole purpose of obtaining reparations for African descendants in the U.S.

Launched in 1987, the founders include the National Conference of Black Lawyers, the New Afrikan Peoples Organization, and the Republic of New Afrika under the N’COBRA umbrella. Individuals and organizational affiliates are also members. There are N’COBRA chapters throughout the U. S. and in Ghana and London.

N’COBRA seeks reparations from two groups: governments and corporations. There are individuals, families, and religious institutions that directly benefited from slavery in the U.S. Acting in good faith, they would contribute to a reparations fund for use in assisting in the reparations process. However, N’COBRA chooses to focus on government and corporations because of their particular role in the horrific tragedies of chattel slavery and the continuing vestiges of slavery we live with today, according to the N’COBRA website.
