Telling the Truth about All This: Reckoning with Slavery and Its Legacies at Harvard and Beyond

Friday, April 29, 9:15 AM-6 PM ET

Knafel Center OR Online on Zoom

10 Garden Street

Cambridge, MA 02138

“Nations reel and stagger on their way; they make hideous mistakes; they commit frightful wrongs; they do great and beautiful things. And shall we not best guide humanity by telling the truth about all this, so far as the truth is ascertainable?” 

—W.E.B. Du Bois, Black Reconstruction in America, 1860–1880 (1935)

Over the past two decades, universities around the world have begun to engage with their legacies related to slavery. Many have issued reports detailing some of their historical ties to slavery, the substantial financial benefits the institutions and their affiliates extracted from slave economies, and universities’ intellectual contributions to racist ideologies and practices. At the same time, this research has uncovered a long history of African American resistance, and we are just beginning to address the impact of legacies of slavery on Black students at these institutions into the 21st century.

With this history uncovered, we must now ask: What must institutions of higher education do? What types of repair work can and should we undertake? We will explore these questions in our conference through discussions about a range of topics, including engagement with descendant communities, legacies of slavery in libraries and museums, and novel public engagement and educational opportunities.

Presentation of Research Professor Zvi Bekerman

WHAT HAPPENS TO CHILDREN WHEN ADULTS FIND SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS THEY DO NOT HAVE

Prof. Zvi Bekerman, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Tuesday April 19, 7-9 pm, light refreshments will be served

Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development,

105 College Ave, Medford, Curriculum Lab

Hosted by Prof. Marina Bers **

Prof. Bekerman will present the results of a long-term ethnographic study of the integrated bilingual Palestinian-Jewish schools in Israel that offer a new educational option to two groups of Israelis —Palestinians and Jews—who have been in conflict for the last one hundred years. Their goal is to create egalitarian bilingual multicultural environments to facilitate the growth of youth who can acknowledge and respect “others” while maintaining loyalty to their respective cultural traditions. The presentation reveals the complex school practices implemented while negotiating identity and culture in contexts of enduring conflict. We will explore the potential and limitations of peace education given the cultural resources, ethnic-religious affiliations, political beliefs, and historical narratives of the various interactants.

Zvi Bekerman teaches anthropology of education at the School of Education, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and is a faculty member at the Mandel Leadership Institute in Jerusalem. He is also an Associate Fellow at The Harry S. Truman Research Institute for The Advancement of Peace. His main interests are in the study of cultural, ethnic and national identity, including identity processes and negotiation during intercultural encounters in formal/informal learning contexts. He is interested in how concepts such as culture and identity intersect with issues of social justice, intercultural and peace education, and citizenship education. His recent work has examined the intersection between civic and religious epistemologies in educational contexts. In addition to publishing in a variety of academic journals, Bekerman is the founding editor of the refereed journal Diaspora, Indigenous, and Minority Education: An International Journal. Among his most recent books: Psychologized language in education: Denaturalizing a regime of truth, (2017); The Promise of Integrated and Multicultural Bilingual Education: Inclusive Palestinian-Arab and Jewish Schools in Israel (2016), Teaching Contested Narratives Identity, Memory and Reconciliation in Peace Education and Beyond. (2012) Integrated Education in Conflicted Societies (2013).
