In 2017, a group of Penn undergraduates founded the Penn & Slavery Project.  Members of the project have investigated Penn’s connections to slavery and scientific racism.  They have also researched the significant contributions of African Americans on campus. The Penn & Slavery Project teaches us that no colony, state, or well-funded university was buffered from slavery’s reach.  Penn’s story is a national story, and one of great importance to our ongoing efforts to come to terms with our nations’s history of slavery. Explore our website to read about the project members, their research findings, publications, presentations, and news coverage about the project!
