UNC Libraries: UNC-Chapel Hill joins project to investigate slavery and U.S. universities through archival records

UNC Libraries: UNC-Chapel Hill joins project to investigate slavery and U.S. universities through archival records. “In 2005, archivists at UNC-Chapel Hill developed “Slavery and the Making of the University.” The exhibition was one of the first systematic efforts on campus to examine the ways enslaved people enabled the University’s founding, growth and wealth. Sixteen years later, a new generation of archivists at the Wilson Special Collections Library is leading efforts to reconstruct the lived experiences of enslaved individuals at and around the University. Their efforts are part of On These Grounds: Slavery and the University.”
