A photo campaign highlighting the faces and voices of black students at Harvard College. Our voices often go unheard on this campus, our experiences are devalued, our presence is questioned— this project is our way of speaking back, of claiming this campus, of standing up to say: We are here. This place is ours. We, TOO, are Harvard. The #itooamharvard photo campaign is inspired by I, Too, Am Harvard, a play based on interviews with members of the black community exploring and affirming our diverse experiences as black students at Harvard College. The original play premieres on Friday March 7th, 2014 at 7 PM in Lowell Lecture Hall on the campus of Harvard College. facebook.com/itooamharvard@iTooAmHarvard #itooamharvard
I need to look into this play seeing as I live in the area. This speaks volumes to me, and many other students attending/have attended Private White Institutions. I hope they shake the grounds of Harvard with this movement - with some residual vibrations being able to reach students in similar situations.
