American civil society is in turmoil with race, prejudice and violence, once again, at the root. Proponents of racial supremacy and ethnic nationalism have achieved prominence in the public sphere, fueled by rhetoric that may or may not be grounded in truth.

What is Harvard’s history with race, ethnicity and class in society? How did Harvard contribute to the constitutional principles that established racial supremacy in the founding of the United States? What is the truth of our own experiences with prejudice and bigotry? What role does Harvard play today and what roles do we play as citizens in society at-large and in our local communities to promote truth and fairness for all people?

 

What are the common values that we share as Harvard graduates and can express through everyday leadership for the common good?  

 

For questions, contact Brenda Walker '88, Past President of the Harvard Club of Seattle.
