A Short Film Introduction to Harvard's Entanglements with Slavery
This short film offers an introduction to the first phase of the initiative’s work—the history—and is intended to be presented in the context of the committee's recommendations for action.
The Harvard & the Legacy of Slavery subcommittee on curriculum, led by Meira Levinson and Martha Minow, proposed the creation of this short documentary film as a tool that could be used across the University as an introduction to Harvard’s entanglements with slavery. It is meant to provide an accessible entry point to the more detailed history presented in the committee's report, and a brief historical foundation for the critical work that lies ahead.
