Chronicle and Slavery


The Chronicle of Higher Education on 19 April 2016 published an article on recent efforts by U.S. colleges to acknowledge and commemorate their involvement with the institution of slavery.

Coverage of Washington and Lee University includes a reference to the African Americans at Washington and Lee: A Timeline compilation, which is heavily based on materials held by the University Library’s Special Collections and Archives.    (You will be able to trace the development of this timeline by checking the Internet Archive.)
