Reckoning with Enslavement's Legacy: Moral Responses

At the May Women's Voices program, we heard from Rev. Jeffrey Harrison, SJ, project coordinator for the Slavery, History, Memory and Reconciliation Project of St. Louis University and the Jesuit Central and Southern Province. Fr. Harrison described the work of this group to uncover the stories of the people enslaved by the Jesuits and to honor their memory. Using sacramental and census records and other sources, the researchers have identified about 70 people the Jesuits enslaved in the St. Louis region between 1823 and 1865. The project works to locate descendants to provide them with the discovered information, learn from their family stories, and chart a course moving forward. Read the summary and link to the recorded program here.
