日期:2022-05-15

美国哈佛大学4月26日发布了一份关于哈佛大学与奴隶制历史联系的报告,报告称,从1636年哈佛大学成立到1783年美国马萨诸塞州禁止奴隶制,奴隶制曾是哈佛大学生活中不可或缺的一部分,哈佛大学的教师和负责人在此期间奴役了70名黑人和原住民。另外,奴隶制在美国盛行时期,不少为哈佛大学提供资金的捐助者都曾利用美国南部和加勒比地区的奴隶贸易和奴隶劳作的种植园获利。

 

An internal committee commissioned by Harvard University has published an exhaustive inquiry1 into the prestigious2 school's history and ties to slavery and the study of eugenics, university president Lawrence Bacow announced on Tuesday, adding that the school was setting aside $100 million to "make amends3" for its past transgressions4.

哈佛大学校长劳伦斯·巴科4月26日宣布,哈佛大学委托的一个内部委员会公布了一份详尽的调查报告,调查这所名校历史上与奴隶制和优生学研究的联系。他还表示,该校将拨出1亿美元用于“弥补”其曾经的过错。

 

Harvard profited from "the beneficence of donors5 who accumulated their wealth through slave trading; from the labor6 of enslaved people on plantations7 in the Caribbean islands and in the American South; and from the Northern textile manufacturing industry, supplied with cotton grown by enslaved people held in bondage," the report, published on Tuesday by the Presidential Committee on Harvard and the Legacy8 of Slavery, revealed.
