This week, San Francisco said sorry to its Black residents and their families for unfair treatment and bad things that happened for many years. The city’s leaders voted together to pass a plan that includes an official apology and promises to fix the problems from the past. Supervisor Shamann Walton, who suggested this plan, called it a big and overdue moment. He said there’s still more to do, but it’s a first step to make things better for Black people in the city.

San Francisco said sorry to Black residents, following Boston’s apology in 2022. The city admitted its involvement in the slave trade and harm caused to Black people. Nine states have also apologized for discrimination. Last year, the Board of Supervisors agreed to give $5 million to eligible Black residents as part of the reparations plan. Tinisch Hollins, former vice-chair of the African American Reparations Advisory Committee, emphasized the importance of the public apology and called for proactive steps to ensure equity for Black San Franciscans using the reparations plan as a guide.
