A presentation of research findings from 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.
Student presentations, beginning at 4:00 pm, will be followed by conversations and q&a from about 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm. This is the second of a set of presentations, the first with other student presenters on January 31.
