A statement from the GU272 Descendant Association in response to the Georgetown Student referendum
The GU272 Descendants Association applauds the actions of students who are doing what students have always have done. Students have always been activists in moving society forward in pursuit of better solutions for our problems.
We see this as a valuable part of a much greater response to atonement and restitution for this nation’s history of slavery.
We would hope that the sense of responsibility and commitment to putting the legacy of slavery behind us that has been shown by the students of Georgetown, will become a vision embraced by students at all of the slave holding institutions.
