Spring 2020

Undergraduate researchers are the driving force behind the Penn & Slavery Project. The students have set and exceeded their independent research goals. They have conducted archival research and found crucial connections between the University of Pennsylvania and the institution of slavery. Additionally, students have highlighted the ways these connections have shaped the larger history of the United States. Summaries of their research are featured throughout this site, organized by subject, and individual reports can be found in their entirety, organized by semester.
