Brown names Bogues slavery-center director

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – Brown University’s Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice has named its first director, The Associated Press reported last week.

Anthony Bogues will head the center. He is a professor of Africana Studies at the school and a visiting professor at the Rhode Island School of Design.

The university started the center after a recommendation from a committee created by outgoing President Ruth Simmons to investigate Brown’s ties to slavery.

According to the AP, Simmons calls the creation of the center and the naming of its first director “crucially important steps” in the future of the school’s efforts in the fields of human rights and justice. •
