THE ROBERSON PROJECT ON SLAVERY, RACE, AND RECONCILIATION: A VIRTUAL Visit

Here at Sewanee, we are committed to confronting our university’s history and creating a more just future for our campus. Our current work with The Robertson Project on Slavery, Race, and Reconciliation, named in honor of the late Professor of History, Houston Bryan Roberson, honors Professor Roberson’s dedication to social justice by examining our university’s historical relationship with slavery and its modern legacy. We invite you to join Roberson Project Director Woody Register as he leads a roundtable discussion with students, faculty, and staff on the progress of this project.
