: New York Times Magazine's 1619 Project author Nikole Hannah Jones said Saturday that Harvard University's $100 million pledge to attempt to atone for its historic ties to slavery is "way too low."

Hannah-Jones made the comments during the National Antiracist Book Festival hosted by Boston University's Center for Antiracist Research.

Harvard University President Lawrence Bacow, in a Washington Post op-ed co-authored with Chair of the Presidential Initiative on Harvard and the Legacy of Slavery and Dean of Harvard University's Radcliffe Institute Tomiko Brown-Nagin, announced Tuesday that the Ivy League college will spend $100 million to study its ties to slavery, including an endowment "to support these efforts in perpetuity." :snip:
