TDM Talks: Harvard’s Racial Reckoning

Articles May 2, 2022

A statement by The Diversity Movement

Harvard University recently released a 134-page report on the school’s historic ties to slavery. The report, authored by the Committee on Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery, details Harvard’s – and New England’s – legacy of slavery in full, before diving into recommendations to rectify the past. As part of an effort to rectify the past, the University has pledged $100 million to fund ongoing research and programming, including fostering partnerships with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), erecting memorials to people who were enslaved at Harvard, and tracing descendants of those individuals.
