(and so did the students at GU, when they voted to raise their own fees to pay for an endowment to allow descendants of the Enslaved Persons sold off by G’town University to attend GU for free…)
Here is what I said about the GU272 earlier:
FYI for anyone possibly descended from slaves sold by Georgetown University, if this is true: check your genealogy and apply for that (alleged) scholarship!!
