Group Description

The NATIONAL COALITION OF BLACKS FOR REPARATIONS IN AMERICA (N'COBRA) http://www.ncobra.org : In the name of our ancestors, we believe that the descendants of Africans, who were captured, forcibly transported from their homeland and held captive for hundreds of years in the Americas and throughout the diapsora, should be compensated."



MISSION



"The mission of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America (N’COBRA) is to win full Reparations for Black African Descendants residing in the United States and its territories for the genocidal war against Africans that created the TransAtlantic Slave “Trade,” Chattel Slavery, Jim Crow and Chattel Slavery’s continuing vestiges (the Maafa). To that end, N’COBRA shall organize and mobilize all strata of these Black communities into an effective mass- based reparations movement. N’COBRA shall also serve as a coordinating body for the reparations effort in the United States. Further, through its leadership role in the reparations movement within the United States and its territories, N’COBRA recognizes reparations is a just demand for all African peoples and shall join with others in building the international reparations movement."




WHAT REPARATIONS IS:



"Reparations is a payment for a debt owed, the act of repairing a wrong or injury, to atone for wrongdoing, to make amends, to make one whole again; the payment of damages, to repair a nation, compensation in money, land or materials to restore and repair the damages incurred in the commission of a crime. The chattel enslavement and other forms of oppression against African people is a crime against humanity."



"The payment is for the enslavement, injustices, cruelties, brutalities, inhumanites and exploitations of racism, white supremacy, economic discrimination and oppression imposed upon Black people past and present." (from N'Cobra's Vision Of Reparations)
