Descendants Of Slaves Sold To Benefit Georgetown University Wants More Than I'm Sorry, Call For A $1 Billion Foundation For Reconciliation!!!
Reader, Thursday Georgetown University apologize for its role in the slave trade and offered to give admissions preference to the descendants of those sold for the benefit of the school, one of the most aggressive responses to date among the universities trying to make amends for the horrors of slavery."
But a group of descendants of slaves sold by Jesuits in the 19th century to benefit Georgetown University called on both the university and Maryland Jesuits to do more to promote reconciliation after the horrors of slavery, asking them to create a charitable foundation.
The descendants proposed a $1 billion foundation and announced that they had raised $115,000 in seed money, an amount equivalent to the 1838 sales price for the 272 people sold to pay off a debt. That amount is equivalent to about $3 million in today’s dollars. Let us pray for more hearts to be humbled and receive the gift of repentance.
