$27 Million Dollars for Reparations Over Slave Ties Pledged by Seminary

posted on October 22, 2019

The New York Times’ Ed Shanahan reports that Princeton Theological Seminary will spend $27 million dollars in reparations for the school’s historical ties to slavery. The money will cover scholarships for descendants of slaves and other underrepresented minorities and be used to hire a director for the Center for Black Church Studies. President M. Craig Barnes says, “The seminary’s ties to slavery are a part of our story. It is important to acknowledge that our founders were entangled with slavery and could not envision a fully integrated society.”
