Slave Legacy History Coalition
The Slave Legacy History Coalition is a consortium of individuals, organizations, and institutions engaged in the preservation of the history of enslaved people in the Cambridge, Boston communities and beyond. The Slave Legacy History Coalition was established in the fall of 2021 by the Lloyd Family descendants of Tony, Cuba, and Darby, whose enslavers Henry Vassall and Penelope Royall endowed the first law professorships at Harvard University, which eventually became Harvard Law School.
The Slave Legacy History Coalition was established to build a pathway forward for other families who are descendants of slaves and also the general public to help connect to the vast repositories of information on slave legacy history in the Boston and Cambridge communities and beyond.
The mission of the Slave Legacy History Coalition is to provide easier access to information and resources on the legacy of slavery before and after emancipation for the families of slave descendants and the general public.
