Yale University ‘Willing’ To Fix Archives As Reparations

3

The Government of Antigua and Barbuda has agreed to approach one of America’s most prestigious universities to fix the National Archives as a form of reparations.

Members of Cabinet said they learned today that Yale University
“is willing to assist and that the contribution would likely be given as reparations.”

For years, ancient documents at the National Archives have been at risk of being destroyed because of a leaky roof and other dangerous conditions.

According to the government, micro-climate within the archives building, that needs to be controlled, is challenged by the intrusion of variable ambient temperatures.

Local historians believe that some ivyleague schools in the U.S benefited from the proceeeds of salvery.

In the case of Harvard University, a frequently cited case of Harvard’s slavery ties is that of the original benefactor of Harvard Law School (HLS). 

The school was formed in 1817 “with the money left to Harvard by an Antiguan slave owner and planter, Isaac Royall,” Boston College law professor Daniel R. Coquillette said in a 2001 speech at HLS.

  1. Both Harvard and Yale need to provide reparations to Antigua. It is completely crazy that we have let both Harvard and Yale get away with their past misdeeds for so long. This isn’t just a racial thing, this is about the fact that both universities damaged the future of the Antigua and Barbuda nation, not just our people. PM Browne, please get as much $$$ from these universities as possible, ASAP.

  2. Before any fixing and assistance or anything of the like is done.
    ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, THEIR INVOLVEMENT, APOLOGY, RETURN OF ALL ARTIFACTS MUST BE THE FIRT BUSINESS ORDER.

    THESE THINGS MUST BE WELL DOCUMENTED BEFORE PROCEEDING.

    We must not fall for trinkets EVER again. We know their cunning ways HISTORY is our only teacher. WAKE UP PEOPLE AQUARIUS IS HERE SIT BACK AND BE AMAZED AS THE UNFOLDING TAKEA PLACE.

    IT IS TIME

  3. That’s a start and could be deemed as an admission of their culpability in the whole question of slavery.
    Why just the Archive and not a university?
    Prefers to preserve the… they might have played … and not enlightenment of the people affected?
    Hmmm.
