HIGH POINT — High Point leaders on Monday blessed the formation of a city commission that will explore slavery reparations for Black residents.

The City Council voted 5-4 to adopt a resolution that establishes a “One High Point Commission” charged with studying what backers of the effort describe as the city’s support of slavery and complicity in racial discrimination and recommending possible remedies that might include a formal apology by the city and “awards of compensation.”
