Harvard students combat racism with #itooamHarvard

I Too Am Harvard (22)

The latest photo campaign to sweep social media goes deeper than the one with children dressed in celebrity red carpet fashion. Inspired by the play I, Too, Am Harvard, the project, which has it’s own Tumblr site, is based on the stories of black Harvard College students that highlight their diverse cultural experiences at the highly accredited institution.

The original play premieres on Friday March 7, 2014 at 7 p.m. in Lowell Lecture Hall on the campus of 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.
