A presentation of research findings from three students in the Yale College fall 2021 seminar, “Slavery, Race, and Yale.”
The course focused on the history of the relationship between Yale University and the institution of racial slavery in the United States, beginning with the founding of the University in 1701, through the era of the American Civil War, up to the end of the 19th century. The course also considered the historical relationship between the University and the Black community of New Haven, including the living memory of enslavement.
This presentation of student research from the fall 2021 seminar is part of the ongoing, overall work of the Yale & Slavery Research Project ( Related resource: video playlist of prior programs of Yale & Slavery Research

This is the second of a set of presentations, the first with other student presenters on January 31. The presentations on March 7 will include highlights from research about anti-slavery conservatism on campus before the Civil War, 19th Century washerwomen and Yale, and Elihu Yale’s gift to the University.
