Jesuits wants to raise billion for reparations program because Georgetown sold slaves in 1838
(THE COLLEGE FIX) – A Catholic religious order that has a history of owning slaves has announced a $1 billion fundraising drive to atone for its past participation in slavery.
The Jesuits, which run universities across the country, have a long-term goal of raising $1 billion and a short-term goal of raising $100 million with the GU272 Descendants Association.
The association is named after the 272 slaves that the Jesuits sold in an attempt to save Georgetown from financial ruin in 1838.
