On this date in 2004, the University of Alabama publicly apologized for the schools associated history of slavery against Africans in America.
This apology was to the descendants of slaves who were once owned by faculty members or who worked on the campus before the Civil War. U of A’s faculty Senate passed a resolution in Tuscaloosa acknowledging and apologizing for their historic role in slavery. An overwhelming majority of the members present voted in favor of the resolution after an extended debate over amendments and discussion of the meaning of the word “atone."
Any reparations, people??
