Robert Brock, who is best-known in D.C. for his protestations against the Holocaust Museum, has for over 30 years been advocating that the federal government make reparations to every descendant of African-American slaves. Brock wants the feds to pay each black American $250,000—an estimated $15 trillion total—which he hopes that they would then use to repatriate to Africa. To plan the “great exodus,” Brock and like-thinkers have organized a regional conference, which will be held Feb. 17-18 at the Comfort Inn at 500 H St. NW.
