With the continued spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice — in alignment with University policy — will suspend all programs and tours effective Wednesday, March 11th. This suspension will remain in place until otherwise notified by University officials. 

We deeply apologize for the impact that this suspension will have on community members that engage with the Center. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at a CSSJ event in the future.
