Legacy of Slavery Paper Here is your first writing assignment: REQUIRED READINGS (ON LINE) You may access these readings by going to the Course Library and selecting "Readings for the Reparations Paper": Cox, James. “Activists Challenge Corporations that They Say are Tied to Slavery,” USA Today, February 21, 2002, 1-2.
