Georgetown University offers reconciliation for slave past

Hosted by

Georgetown University has come clean about its history with the slave trade. Will other schools step up and do more?


Georgetown University has not just documented its unsavory past, it's offering assistance to the descendants of slaves it sold to Southern plantations. Is that the same as "reparations?" What about other institutions involved in the trade?
