Shedding Light on Difficult Institutional Histories

Historian Leslie Harris (Northwestern University) advises colleges and universities to be open and honest about their histories of slavery and race. Harris is in conversation with David Blight, director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition at Yale University’s MacMillan Center. This conversation was recorded in April 2021 as part of CIC’s “Legacies of American Slavery: Reckoning with the Past” initiative.
