My Brother's Keeper Cambridge and Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery Initiative are pleased to invite you to the first in a series of community conversations to spark dialogue, engagement and empowerment for the reparative work ahead between our community and Harvard University, following the release of the university's report disclosing its historical ties to slavery and its commitment of a $100 million endowment to support reparative efforts.
This series kickoff event will take place on Tuesday September 19 at the Main Library Library. from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
The event includes a short-film screening highlighting the report and a panel discussion with Vincent Brown, Melissa Wood Bartholomew and Terrance Mitchell, moderated by Tony Clark. Through the discussion, panelists will inform the community about the report, its findings, and aim to energize the community about our involvement in the collective work ahead of us.
