About Us

The Slavery, History, Memory, and Reconciliation Project researches the lived experiences of enslaved adults and children whom the Jesuits owned. The project aims to know, and to share, a more complete history of Jesuit involvement in the institution of slavery. We pledge to make that information available as quickly as we can in ways accessible to descendants. We are committed to a transformative process of truth-telling, reconciliation, and healing that, in conversation with the descendants of those held in bondage, acknowledges historical harms, seeks to repair relationships, and works within our communities to address the legacies of slavery that persist in the form of racial inequities today.
