Last March, a crowd of nearly 100 gathered in Williamsburg, Virginia, for an all-day symposium about slavery and reconciliation. The event, put on by the College of William & Mary, wasn’t a broad, rhetorical discussion of the past.

Among those in attendance: Brown, Harvard, University of Virginia, Clemson University, The Citadel, Stanford University, University of Indiana and Yale University."
