Professor Tatishe Nteta featured on NPR's All Things Considered discussing California Voters opposing Cash Reparations

Tatishe Nteta, Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst is featured on NPR's All Things Considered discusses California Voters opposing Cash Reparations for Slavery. "California is an important test case," said Tatishe Nteta, who has conducted national polling on public support for reparations. "If it does pass, I think it provides the momentum for the reparations movement that it has been looking for for 200-plus years. But if it doesn't pass, it provides momentum for those who oppose reparations to make the case that in a state as progressive as California, if you can't pass reparations, the likelihood of passing this at the national level is very low, and in other states is also very low." Nteta said the Berkeley poll's findings on California voters mirror his own polling of Americans nationally. (NPR 9/11/23)
