Panel on Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery
Panel and workshop Focusing on Recent Report from the Board of Governors
Date: June (TBD) Kendeda Building, Georgia Tech University
In 2022, Harvard University published a remarkable report on the historical involvement of the university with the institution of slavery: “Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery.” The report summarizes Harvard’s engagement with slavery from the university’s beginnings. It also describes resistance to slavery within the university. And it makes recommendations for what the Harvard community should do to redress its historical involvement.
Harvard Club of Georgia is preparing a panel discussion of the report for Harvard alumni of Georgia as well as others in the Atlanta community who may be interested, on April 14th, 6 - 9pm, in the Georgia Tech University’s
Kendeda Building. Panelists will briefly review aspects of the report and the audience will be invited to respond.
The Kendeda Building for Innovative Sustainable Design is the first building in Georgia and 28th in the world to earn Living Building Challenge certification. Shan Arora, Director of The Kendeda Building, will introduce the building.
Wine and appetizers will be available from 6 - 7.
