Black Harvard Students Express Their Frustration with Campus Racism in 'I, Too, Am Harvard'

Black students at Harvard have come together to publicly address their frustrations with racial hostilities on campus. The "I, Too, Am Harvard" campaign is a multimedia project that consists of a collection of testimonies from Black students about their experiences in and outside of the classroom.

What's most heartening about the campaign is the prominence of Black women within it. Sophomore Kimiko Matsuda-Lawrence began the campaign and Junior Ahsante Bean produced the accompanying video.

This is incredible work that captures the kind of alienation felt by Black students at predominately white universities across the country.
