The “I, Too, Am Harvard” photo campaign explores the diverse experience that black students at Harvard have to face. Here are 21 of the images.

These are examples of microaggressions. They seem harmless (to the person saying them), but cumulatively, they really hurt!
As another minority student who went to a highly acclaimed private institution, I can definitely associate with the feeling of not belonging in the dominantly white population. College was hard because everyone’s idea of beautiful was a skinny, athletic, white girl. Additionally, being one of five out of 50 minority students in the undergraduate secondary education program made me the “go to” for how to teach students of different races.
It’s something that you try not to think about, and something that you think we’re past, but we’re not. It’s unfortunate, but we just gotta keep moving forward.
These students are intelligent, they worked hard in school, and got where they are based on that. What upsets me is that people are dedicated to their future, their lives, and now are feeling self conscious because of the color of their skin, and their appearance. I respect them for speaking up! The ignorance of others just needs to stop.
Pretty heartbreaking. These beautiful and bright students deserve so much better. Above I included some of the photographs (there’s many more) of Black women who are students there because I think it’s important to point out how racism is not only impacting Whites’ perception of their intelligence but also how White people approach their appearance as well, in gender-specific ways. This is heartbreaking to me albeit not surprising. The myth that working hard = happy payoff is a fairy tale. Racism is ubiquitous.
I really wish them the best with their education and the ability to navigate these microaggressions and overt acts of racism. This stuff increases stereotype threat and impacts mental health and health which impacts performance. I want the best for them. Much love. ❤
I almost cried when I saw this part. This is what you do. You don’t continue on your way because it doesn’t involve you.
Look at the way she shields the stranger WITH HER OWN BODY.
This is what needs to happen when you see someone being bullied or harassed.
I love this so much you go girl
watch both their faces go from “courteous TV smile” to “not paid enough for this bull”
