  1. Thank you – what about a seminary that has caused harm but not through slavery? Rather the harms caused were through the perpetration of a racist culture sometimes through a tradition of marginalizing/ignoring African American students, marginalization of AA staff, housing displacement into segregated neighborhoods and other harms that are still being discovered.
