Harvard: 400 Years of Inequality

This past August marked 400 years since the first documented arrival of enslaved Africans on North American shores. At a crucial juncture in our national and global history, this anniversary is a chance not only to consider the central role that slavery played in our foundation, but also to contextualize discussions around contemporary race issues in the U.S.

This Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health event is part of a broader movement across schools of public health to observe “400 Years of Inequality,” acknowledging the systemic and persistent inequalities and injustices perpetuated by the slave trade.
