Georgetown Univ. Announces Admissions 'Advantage' for Descendants of 272 Slaves Sold in 1838
Georgetown University has announced that descendants of 272 slaves, from whose sale the school profited in 1838, will receive "an advantage in the admissions process" as part of a larger effort to address the school's early ties to slavery. At an event for students Thursday, school president John DeGioia said the university will provide "the same care and respect to the descendants" as it currently extends to members of the Georgetown community, such as faculty, staff and alumni.
