An all-day conference titled "Telling the Truth about All This: Reckoning with Slavery and Its Legacies at Harvard and Beyond" will be held in-person and virtually.  The conference examines the historical ties to slavery in universities and the substantial financial benefits the institutions and their affiliates extracted from slave economies, and universities’ intellectual contributions to racist ideologies and practices. Discussions will explore questions about a range of topics, including engagement with descendant communities, legacies of slavery in libraries and museums, novel public engagement and educational opportunities, and what must institutions of higher education do and what types of repair work can and should be undertaken?
