Harvard and Slavery:  Then & Now


Friday, Sep 25th, 1:00 pm ET



A student-organized convening that connects past and present struggles to shed light on the life and afterlife of slavery at Harvard.


About this Event

Harvard & Slavery: Then & Now is a student-organized convening that connects past and present struggles to shed light on the life and afterlife of slavery at Harvard. By refusing the administration’s argument that Harvard’s relationship to economies of captivity are exclusively historical, Harvard & Slavery: Then & Now brings together students, professors, and community members whose work highlights how Harvard has built and continues to sustain itself on the value extracted from caged, confined, and catalogued Black persons.

The convening will commence with a grounding conversation between Tamara Lanier, the courageous litigant who has taken Harvard to court for the images of her enslaved ancestors Renty and Delia, and Caitlin Hopkins, Ph.D., who was the Research Associate for the Harvard and Slavery Project from 2017-19 and part of the Universities Studying Slavery consortium. In the second half of the convening, student researchers and organizers will present their work pertaining to the past and presence of slavery at Harvard.

The convening will take place by Zoom on Friday, September 25, at 1pm ET. Organized entirely by students, the convening will be free and open to the public. All are encouraged to attend.
