“The Cost of Inheritance” Screening and Panel

Two professors at the college will feature in a panel following a Feb. 15 screening of “The Cost of Inheritance,” a new film about the reparations debate in the U.S. Stefan Bradley — professor of education studies, Black studies, and history — and Jallicia Jolly, professor of American studies and Black studies, will join two of the film’s subjects, Briyna Cuffie and Lotte Lieb Dula, and Michele Miller, chair of Amherst’s African Heritage Reparation Assembly, on the panel.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
