In this June 13 photo, Patricia Bayonne-Johnson, a descendant of two of the 272 slaves sold by Georgetown University in 1838, meets with John DeGoia, the school's president, at the Spokane Public Library in Spokane, Wash.. The slaves, owned by the Jesuit priests who founded and ran the college, were sold for about $3.3 million in today's dollars, and a portion was used to help pay off Georgetown's debts at a time when the college was struggling financially.
