West, Robert Matthew
MetadataShow full item record
The institution of slavery has deep roots in American history. The connections are evident in multiple pillars of society, including that of higher education. Many colleges and universities that were founded before the abolishment of slavery, in 1865, still exist today. Several of these schools have historical connections to slavery in one form or another. In recent years, multiple colleges and universities have begun to examine their historical connections to the institution of slavery. This thesis examines the more prominent efforts currently underway by some of these schools and looks at the challenges that can arise when addressing the issue. This thesis also proposes ways that other schools can effectively do the same, while also addressing the preservation issues related to this topic and the validity of apologies coming from these schools.
