Examining the Origins and Legacy of Indigenous Slavery on the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower's Landing.
Join fellow alumni and community guests for a discussion on indigenous slavery at Harvard and in New England.
"ALTHOUGH IT HAS NOT been a secret, Harvard’s past connections to slavery are hardly well known," begins John S. Rosenberg's article in the Harvard Magazine. This event will explore the enslavement of indigenous people at Harvard and in New England. This event will explore the history or indigenous slavery from three perspectives: a historian, a tribal elder, and a member of Harvard's Initiative on Harvard And The Legacy of Slavery.
