At the 2019 Data for Black Lives conference panel session “Black People vs. Robots: Reparations and Workers Rights in the Age of Automation,” panelists discussed the impact of automation in sectors with majority Black workforces. Speakers considered the structural inequalities in access to re-skilling opportunities, the importance of reckoning with the history of slavery in relation to both universal basic income and reparations, and how to envision a just social safety net for the future.
