Brown University’s Slavery and Justice Report with Commentary on Context and Impact: Presenting the Revised and Expanded Second Edition (Commencement Forum)

In 2006 Brown released its groundbreaking Report of the Brown University Steering Committee on Slavery and Justice, confronting and publicly documenting the University’s complex history with the transatlantic slave trade and its legacies of inequity and injustice. A newly released expanded edition, available through an immersive, interactive digital experience and as a printed book, offers insights into the report’s persistent and evolving impact both on campus and across the world. Join Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice Director Anthony Bogues, Digital Scholarship Editor Allison Levy and other contributors for a demonstration and discussion of the reinvigorated report.
