Telling their own stories

This photo of Cherrydale, the former home of university President James C. Furman, was taken around 1889.

With the announcement of its Task Force on Slavery and Justice in May 2016, Furman joined a growing number of colleges and universities who are studying their historic ties to slavery. The Post and Courier in Charleston wrote an article about the South Carolina schools that are taking a deeper look at that history, including Furman, The Citadel, Clemson University and the University of South Carolina. All have joined the Universities Studying Slavery Consortium, based at the University of Virginia. Furman history professor Steve O’Neill is also quoted in the article.
