Historical Justice Initiative

A self-guided, interactive walking tour of Columbia's Morningside Campus

Our Project


The CU Historical Justice Initiative draws much of its historical information from the CU & Slavery Project. The Initiative offers a self-guided, interactive walking tour of CU's Morningside campus. Centering around the accessible buildings of the lower half of the Morningside campus, the CU Historical Justice Initiative aims to present narratives of slavery, oppression, and violence, while preserving stories of resistance, perseverance, and social progress on-campus.
