Memorial to Enslaved Laborers
Memorial to Enslaved Laborers at the University

After nearly 200 years, the Grounds will finally include a memorial to the enslaved laborers who played a crucial role in making this University a reality. The memorial is the first big step in our plans to embrace the story of the University’s enslaved workers and to ensure it is told broadly across Grounds. As the home of one of the world’s most distinctive landmarks, we are not just committed to preserving our historic Grounds for the University’s third century. We are fully committed to ensuring that future generations of students and scholars are better able to understand the complete story behind the unique—and sometimes very painful—origins of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Design refinements to the memorial will continue as the University builds philanthropic support for the project. Please consider a contribution towards making the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers a reality on Grounds. For more information, please visit:
