In the Ebsco databases (Academic Search Complete is the best place to start) you can do a basic search for reparations for African Americans, which will retrieve several hundred articles.  You can limit this article list through the options on the left side of the screen.  Under Subject: Thesaurus Term, you can select specific subjects that will reduce the search to a smaller and more relevant number of articles.

Alternatively, you can start your search specifically with the articles that have this subject assigned to them by entering this search string: DE "AFRICAN Americans -- Reparations".  You can also retrieve articles about reparations in general with this search: DE "REPARATIONS for historical injustices".
