Seed Grant Award: Universities, Communities and Racial Redress

Elazar Barkan, School of International and Public Affairs


The U.S. African American Racial Redress Network is a collaborative initiative between Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights and Howard University’s Thurgood Marshall Civil Rights Center. The Network will convene those working on redress within higher education institutions and members of affected communities for a public discussion to examine methodologies, identify challenges and successes, and explore avenues of  support. The Network aims to contribute to the greater dialogue on U.S. human rights and the need to advance racial justice.

This project was funded through the Addressing Racism: A Call to Action for Higher Education initiative of the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement.
