The Case for Harvard to Return Slave Photos

13 minutes

For more than 200 years, Harvard University has been profiting from the photos of an enslaved man (named "Renty") and his daughter. Their descendants want the photos returned and they are taking the powerful university to court. Many universities are finally admitting their participation in and profit from African slavery. A few universities are making reparations; others are only making apologies. What will Harvard do? A court will decide. Sibling-lawyers Doug and Robin discuss this trending issue and want your thoughts too. Grab a cup of espresso and join this uncommon conversation!
