Spreading Awareness at Harvard

Earlier this month I came across a project at Harvard University called the "I, Too, Am Harvard," campaign. Using a series of photos, each participant holds up a whiteboard with some message detailing a particular phrase or question they've been asked as a student of color at Harvard. The people involved make it known just how much ignorance they routinely deal with in school from their peers. This project really is bringing awareness to what many students at Harvard (and I'm sure at other predominately white institutions) have had to put up with on a consistent basis. The project has been so successful that students of color at Oxford University have made a similar montage of messages as well. Take a look below.
